Johnny Depp has reportedly been approached by Kathryn Bigelow about a role in Triple Frontier.

The Alice In Wonderland star, who has been busy filming the fourth instalment of Pirates Of The Caribbean in London, is being considered by the Oscar-winning filmmaker to star with Tom Hanks in her forthcoming drama.

Johnny, who would take one of the five lead roles, apparently likes the part and the idea of working with Tom, but his involvement would be subject to scheduling issues, Deadline said.

In addition to completing Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, which also stars Penelope Cruz, the 47-year-old is preparing to start work as Barnabas Collins in Dark Shadows with Tim Burton, which his production company is also producing.
