When I think of Johnny Depp and The Secret World, it reminds me of his movie “The Ninth Gate”. One of the most god awful boring “should have been cool” movies in all of history that is somewhat about the same type of content. I get that he was only an actor and it’s a much different thing than producing and directing but still, I can’t help but think of that :D

Well, I guess it’s a better investment than $3 million spent to blast Hunter Thompson’s ashes out of a cannon, collecting enough memorabilia to fill 12 storage facilities and $30,000 a month spent on wine. At least for us MMO players anyway.


Considering this…

“The pilot was written by James V. Hart (Hook, Dracula, Contact) and Jake Hart.”

and I like all three of those movies, I’m gonna give it a try.
