Print this article Fans of "Doctor Who" may be in for a treat. According to AirLockAlpha.com, Johnny Depp may have been cast in the leading role.
The news source reports that the series' former showrunner, Russell T. Davies, is getting ready to direct a feature-length film adaptation of the cherished sci-fi show.
"Bringing the 'Who' franchise to the theaters is a regeneration for the character beyond the usual one," Davies reportedly said, according to SciFi Wire. "A theatrical release has a greater range and can reach millions of more people than just the fans."
The original "Doctor Who" series ran on the BBC from 1963 to 1989, and starred Tom Baker as the title character. The show was later resurrected in 2005, featuring David Tennant.
Moviegoers may recognize Tennant, as he recently lent his voice to the critically-acclaimed cartoon "How to Train Your Dragon" and also appeared in "Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire."
According to the Guinness World Records, "Doctor Who" is the longest-running science fiction television show in the world.
