Johnny Depp is set to fulfil his longtime musical ambitions by playing a rock star in a new movie.
The Hollywood star initially embarked on a music career when he left school, playing with several rock groups before turning his attention to acting.
Depp has revived his musical interests in recent months, playing with British band Babybird on their recent album and reportedly entering negotiations to launch his own record label.
Now Depp is set to play out his rock 'n' roll dream on the big screen after reportedly landing the lead role in upcoming film Sonny Boy.
The movie tells the story of a rocker who scores a hit with an old song and embarks on a mission to find the track's original writer, according to Britain's The Sun.
