The story will paint Houdini not just as a master escape artist, but as a man who investigates the world of the occult, and is based on the book of the same name.

Johnny Depp, who recently got engaged to girlfriend Amber Heard, is currently filming a biopic about notorious gangster Whitey Bulger, and has the “Alice in Wonderland” sequel “Through The Looking Glass,” as well as “Pirates of The Caribbean 5” coming out over the next two years.
