Johnny Depp To Raise Hell As Satan In Gilliam’s Divine Comedy With Jeff Bridges As God!

  • Johnny Depp is set to play Satan in Terry Gilliam’s new movie “The Carnival at the End of Days,” with Jeff Bridges as God.
  • The film is a comedy about God deciding to wipe out humanity, with Satan trying to save them, featuring a quirky God who can talk through nature.
  • Despite Gilliam’s past struggles with film production, he’s aiming to start shooting next January, so fingers crossed it actually happens!


Hold onto your hats, movie fans! The ever-quirky and wildly imaginative Terry Gilliam is gearing up for his next cinematic adventure, and it’s shaping up to be a real head-spinner. Titled “The Carnival at the End of Days,” this upcoming comedy revolves around a very unusual plot: God decides to wipe out humanity, and the only one interested in saving us is … Satan? Yep, you heard that right. And who better to don the devilish horns than the one and only Johnny Depp!

Gilliam first teased this bizarre yet intriguing idea last year, but he dropped some juicy details while chatting with Première at the Annecy International Animated Film Festival. Alongside Johnny Depp as Satan, the film boasts a star-studded cast, including Jeff Bridges as God and appearances by Adam Driver and Jason Momoa. Talk about a lineup!

According to Gilliam, Jeff Bridges’ portrayal of God will be unique and unlike any deity we’ve seen before. “Jeff Bridges will not be the God we are accustomed to,” Gilliam said. “In the film, God is nature. But a nature that can speak to you. I’m going to need animation to bring him to life because in the scene with God, there are at least fifteen animals. And it’s going to be complicated, because it has to be realistic. And it’s going to be very expensive. We’ll see what happens. But it’s a good scenario. It’ll be very fun for those who like to be offended.”

Hilarious, controversial, and deeply imaginative—this isn’t your typical Hollywood fare.

Shooting Starts When?

The director also mentioned he’s still working out the logistics—when and where the film will be shot—but he’s targeting a January start date. The storyline includes Satan on a quest to find a human couple to present to God as the modern-day Adam and Eve, so expect even more casting news as things progress.

Will It Actually Get Made?

Now, here’s the million-dollar question: will “The Carnival at the End of Days” actually make it to the big screen? Gilliam has had his fair share of struggles launching projects. Case in point: his last film, “The Man Who Killed Don Quixote,” languished in development hell for decades. That film’s production was so fraught with problems that it essentially became the stuff of legend—and not in a good way.

Given all that, here’s hoping this new project sails a bit smoother.

Depp Is Back!

On the plus side, Johnny Depp seems to be bouncing back nicely after his highly publicized legal battles. He’s recently appeared in “Jeanne Du Barry” and even stepped behind the camera for “Modi,” his first directorial effort in over two decades.
