Johnny Depp - Johnny Depp Editing Woody Guthrie's Last Novel

Actor Johnny Depp has turned editor in an effort to aid the release of one of folk singer Woody Guthrie's last novels.
The late musician's daughter Nora Guthrie stumbled upon her father's previously unpublished work, House of Earth, last autumn (11) and now The Pirates of the Caribbean star has teamed up with author Douglas Brinkley to revise the book in celebration of the centennial of the singer's birth, which will be celebrated on Saturday (14Jul12).
The manuscript, completed by the icon in 1947, chronicles a West Texas couple's struggle to build a clay home. It is scheduled for release next spring (13), 46 years after Guthrie's death.
This isn't the first time the actor has worked with Brinkley - the two co-wrote the Grammy Award-nominated liner notes for the soundtrack to Gonzo, a documentary about their late journalist pal Hunter S. Thompson.
