Johnny Depp: Zombie for a Day?

From Louth Today:
A PAIR of budding movie moguls are trying to raise £100,000 to fund their first film and convince Hollywood star Johnny Depp to be a zombie for a day.Andrew Cargill, 20, from Fanthorpe Lane, Louth, and his university pal Tony Lane, 28 from Grimsby, have big plans for Indywood, their movie company.

The duo have started a petition to try and convince Johnny Depp to star in their film, a B-movie spoof called Invasion of the Not Quite Dead.

Tony said: "I know where he has a house – so I'll deliver it personally."

On January 1 they launched a website to try and make £100,000 by selling square spaces to people who want to help fund the film.

Andrew said: "Once people sign up they get their own profile page, a bit like the My Space website."

One square costs £10.19 or $20 and it provides a link to the owner's profile page.
In June one person from the site will be picked at random to win ten per cent of the money they make.

A distribution company to sell the film and others is also in the pipeline.
Tony said controversial filmmaker Ken Russell has said he would like them to sell some films he is making.

Both Andrew and Tony are in their final year at the International Film School in Newport, Wales.
