Depp: I wouldn't change The Tourist

Johnny Depp has jumped to the defence of his latest film The Tourist, insisting he wouldn't change a thing about it.
Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck's thriller, which also starred Angelina Jolie, was expected to be a box office hit but had a disappointing opening weekend on its release last month.
"I'd do it exactly the same - I don't know the main ingredient of success at the box office, I just feel that's not something I can do anything about," he told Entertainment Weekly.
Despite the film receiving miserable reviews, with Rotten Tomatoes saying it had a "slow, muddled plot" and a "lack of chemistry" between the two stars, it is up for three Golden Globe awards, including acting nods for Johnny and Angelina.
Johnny, who plays a maths teacher caught up in international intrigue while on a European holiday, continued: "I wanted to work with Angelina and I felt like I had a good handle on the character. It was not a character that I'd really played before."
Next for the actor is Gore Verbinski's Rango, where he voices the title chameleon hero, and the fourth instalment of Pirates Of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, which will be released in May.
