Johnny Depp Is a Chameleon. No, I Mean a Literal, Actual Chameleon

I first saw the trailer for Rango, the animated film from director Gore Verbinski, and sort of dismissed it since it didn't really tell me anything about the film. Verbinski's a pretty hit-or-miss director, so I was pretty sure my feelings of "meh" were warranted. I loved the first Pirates of the Caribbean and The Ring, but hated the Pirates sequels, and found The Weather Man to be tepid at best. Anyway, here's the teaser trailer:

Of course, I was also being lazy and didn't bother doing any research on the film. Now that I've seen the poster and done a bit of digging, well, I think I'm officially interested.

Right now, the only synopsis available is one simple sentence:

The story of a chameleon with an identity crisis.

Heh. Here's the little fella in question:

When I was a kid in Cape Town, my grandmother's house had chameleons just like that (sans Hawaiian shirt) all over the garden, and I took great pleasure in tormenting my sister with them -- putting them on her head when she wasn't paying attention, sticking them in her dresser drawers. Great fun.

Heh. Anyway, the cast is pretty unusual, and also pretty awesome -- Johnny Depp, Timothy Olyphant, Abigail Breslin, Isla Fisher, Ray Winstone, Stephen Root, Alfred Molina, Harry Dean Stanton, and Bill Nighy.

Yowza.

Discuss.
