Johnny Depp almost trampled by horse

Jul 8 2013, 12:12am CDT | by

Johnny Depp was almost trampled by a horse while filming 'The Lone Ranger'.

The 50-year-old star insisted on doing as many action scenes as possible in the Disney western but almost regretted it when he was thrown of his horse Scout, holding its mane as he was dragged for 25 yards.

He said: ''We'd been running the horses pretty hot that day and went down a couple of paths. That all worked out fine until we changed paths in order to get closer to the camera car. Scout decided to jump over a few obstacles. So yeah, user error.

''You would expect to be riddled with fear or adrenaline, but I saw everything very clearly, which was the horse's muscular front legs moving at a dangerous speed.

''I was still holding on to the mane like an idiot trying to get back up and at a certain point you have to make a decision, do I go down and hit the deck on my own? Or do I wait for the hoof to split my face in two? So I decided to go down on my own and then, incredibly, the horse lifted its front legs and he missed me.''

It was almost a fatal disaster for Johnny, who knows he could have been ''crushed'' - and despite the accident he wants to buy the horse.

He told the Mail on Sunday newspaper's Event magazine: ''He could have crushed me in seconds. I was lucky that the horse's instincts were good.

''I hit the deck and then stood up. Everybody was yelling at me, 'Stay down!' But I felt fine and just stood up and shook it off.

''After it happened they were a little skittish about putting me back on a horse for any stunts, but I did get back on and it was fine. And Scout is a very good horse. Really, he saved my life. I'm trying to buy him.''

‘Tusk’ Review: Kevin Smith’s Horror Film Is Ambitious But Messy in Every Way

Sep 19 2014 7:00pm CDT | Source: slash film

Kevin Smith‘s Tusk is a prime example of a filmmaker in the midst of reinvention. Every since the disaster that was Cop Out, Smith has been on a quest to become a new director. First he shunned Hollywood and self-distributed Red State, a welcome departure from his off-the-wall comedies of the past. Now he’s delving deep into horror with Tusk, the story of a man named Howard (Michael Parks) who kidnaps a podcaster named Wallace (Justin Long) and attempts to turn him into a Wal ...

Were Robin Williams & Johnny Depp Going to Save the World?

Sep 9 2014 10:34pm CDT | Source: movie pilot

Here at my house, we are still not at a place where we can talk about the passing of Robin Williams with any sort of coherence. It usually just results in one or more of us descending into weepy tears of loss and heartbreak.Like this, but way less attractive.However, there is almost nothing more sad at this point than hearing about all of the amazing projects that could have been, had we not lost Williams too soon. But, such news keeps coming, most recently in the form of a dream project ...
