Depp To Discover Gravity

Hollywood heart-throb JOHNNY DEPP is set to don tights and a wig to play 17th century scientist SIR ISAAC NEWTON in a forthcoming biopic.

MIRAMAX movie mogul HARVEY WEINSTEIN is currently planning to bring the famous Brit physicist, who developed the theory of gravity, to the big screen and is desperate for Depp to land the leading role.

Weinstein enthuses, "While I'm over in England, I intend to convince Johnny to sign for the role.

"I think he'd be perfect for it.

"It's one of my last remaining ambitions to make a film about Sir Isaac Newton. He was the most brilliant scientist in history, but he also spent considerable amount of time working as detective, which tells you a little of how fascinating his story is."
