Johnny Depp to launch book imprint

Johnny Depp is adding publisher to his resume.

The Pirates of the Caribbean star is teaming up with publishing giant HarperCollins to create a new book imprint, according to USA Today.

Infinitum Nihil, which translates to "nothing is forever", will publish "authentic, outspoken and visionary" content.

"We will do our best to deliver publications worthy of people's time, of people's concern. Publications that might ordinarily never have breached the parapet," the actor said in a statement.

One of the first projects set for release will be The Unraveled Tales of Bob Dylan, by historian Douglas Brinkley.

The tome is scheduled to hit shelves in 2015.

The venture is particularly meaningful to both Johnny and Douglas, who has profiled the folk singer for Rolling Stone magazine.

"Bob has been very warm and forthcoming with us. His music has inspired us both deeply since we were teenagers," Douglas said.

The pair are also collaborating to publish a newly-unearthed tome written by late folk musician Woody Guthrie.
