It has been revealed that Johnny Depp will make a surprising cameo appearance in Adam Sandler’s latest film, Jack and Jill.
Jack and Jill stars Sandler as both halves of a boy/girl set of twins. He is also joined by Katie Holmes, who will play the male twin’s wife, whilst Al Pacino will play himself, falling in love with the female twin.
Rumours of a secret guest star appearance in the film have circulated for some time – fuelled especially by pictures of Johnny Depp visiting the set, which appeared last month.
Now it seems that director Dennis Dugan, who has worked with Sandler on the likes of Happy Gilmore, Big Daddy, and You Don’t Mess with the Zohan, has finally let the cat out of the bag. Speaking at the première of their latest collaboration, Just Go With It, Dugan reportedly told MTV, “There’s a secret guest star, but I can’t say who it is,” before revealing, “[It’s] Johnny Depp.”
However, the nature of Depp’s appearance is still very much under wraps.
Meanwhile, rumours of another Depp cameo – this time in the upcoming 21 Jump Street film – have not yet been confirmed. The actor has, of course, been busy of late, filming for The Rum Diary and Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides.
Jack and Jill is not the first time this year that Holmes and Pacino will appear together on screen – the pair also worked on The Son of No One, which premièred at the Sundance Film Festival last month.
Jack and Jill is being produced by Sandler’s production company, Happy Madison, and is schedules to be reach UK cinemas on 2nd December this year.
