Over the past few days we’ve had several readers email us about all of the Johnny Depp sightings coming from the Monument Valley, Utah area this week.
Though the Johnny Depp sightings are just rumors at this point, we know they are scouting locations in Monument Valley for Johnny’s upcoming movie The Lone Ranger. We heard they were at John Ford’s Point earlier this week and it’s thought that the crew is staying in Kayenta, AZ, which is located about 20 miles south of Monument Valley.
The Johnny Depp rumors range from him being in the area to attend a Cowboy Camp and train for his upcoming role as Tonto, to him being in town because he is helping with the location scouting. A quick Twitter and Facebook search for “Johnny Depp in Kayenta” brings up dozens of sightings, but we have yet to see any photographic evidence.
So, if you have photos of Johnny in Arizona or Utah that will prove his whereabouts, let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org! We’d love to turn these rumors into facts!
The Lone Ranger begins filming this spring in various locations in Utah and New Mexico.
UPDATE: The latest we’ve heard is that he was spotted in Gallup, NM on Friday (1.6) night.
