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.''

Streep, Depp and the rest talk up the filmThe promotional materials for Rob Marshall’s Into The Woods have so far not so much hidden as obscured the idea that the new film, adapted from Stephen Sondheim’s stage musical actually contains music itself. The trailers have yet to include any of the songs, but a new featurette lets the cast show off their pipes at last.Riffing on the stories of the Brothers Grimm, Into The Woods is about a childless baker who attempts to l ...

Our longest look so far at INTO THE WOODS via this featurette!

Oct 23 2014 3:40pm CDT | Source: aintitcool

We see Johnny Depp's wolf in action, as well as footage of characters singing. Read the full article on AICN I believe this is the first time we're seeing Johnny Depp's Big Bad Wolf (revealed yesterday) in action, or footage of any of the cast members actually singing.   Disney is unsurprisingly aiming directly for the MALEFICENT crowd with this one, with this featurette highlighting how they are recontexualizing the classic fairy tales like Rapunzel or Cinderella, but w ...

This featurette, however, gives us not only interviews with the cast and crew, discussing the creation of the film, but also a lot more footage. And singing! In this you can hear the cast sing for the first time. There are snippets of ‘I Wish,’ featuri ...
