Johnny Depp Fans Get Ready For DeppCon

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Johnny Depp’s new movie, Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest doesn’t open until next Friday (July 7) but his fans will be showing their “Depp” appreciation starting Thursday (July 6).

That’s because the 3rd Annual DeppCon, a four-day festival dedicated to all things Depp, is taking place in Los Angeles.

Organizer Linda Lebherz figures there will be at least 60 Depp heads in attendance who will be celebrating by engaging in seminars like “How Johnny Depp impacted my life,” plus trivia contests and watching tapes of his talk show appearances.

There will also be concert footage of Depp playing with his band, “P,” as well as a tour of Depp-related L.A. hot spots such as the Viper Room, his former apartment and a delicatessen that has named a chicken sandwich after the actor.

Naturally, Depp’s devotees will go to a special performance of the new Pirates movie and Lebherz suspects some will sail off to Disneyland to see the audio-animatronic Captain Jack Sparrow in the updated Pirates Of The Caribbean ride.
