Depp 'Quits Acting' Until Daughter's Recovery?

LATEST: JOHNNY DEPP has reportedly quit acting until his daughter LILY-ROSE recovers from an undisclosed illness. Depp is currently working on a movie version of stage musical SWEENEY TODD in England, but has halted filming until the four-year-old recovers. Lily-Rose was admitted to an English hospital at the end of February (07), with Depp and partner VANESSA PARADIS at the child's bedside ever since. Staff at Pinewood Studios have reportedly been told they will lose their jobs at the weekend (17-18MAR07) if Depp does not return to the movie set. A source tells British newspaper the Daily Mirror, "He does not want to come back until Lily-Rose gets the all-clear. The plan is to re-employ everybody when she gets better."
