    Johnny Depp will reunite with "Pirates of the Caribbean" director Gore Verbinskion "Rango," an animated pic that Paramount will finance and distribute.

    The studio has slotted the film for a March 2011 release.

    Depp will voice the lead character, a household pet that goes on an adventure to discover its true self.

    John Logan ("The Aviator") has penned the script from an idea hatched by Verbinski. Verbinski will work with Industrial Light & Magic on the animation.

    "Rango" will be produced by Verbinski’s Blind Wink Prods., Graham King amd John Caris. Par-based Nickelodeon Films is expected to be involved as well.

    The CG "Rango" will be Par’s most ambitious star-driven entry into animation. Project was developed by King’s GK Films, which made the original deal with Verbinski (Daily Variety, Feb. 20).

    Verbinski will direct "Rango" as he continues to develop an adaptation of the bestselling Take-Two vidgame "Bioshock" for Universal. That film is also being scripted by Logan.

    "Rango" aims to use cutting-edge animation techniques that "will allow us to capture and translate every aspect of Johnny’s performance, using it to drive the computer-generated character in a way that has yet to be seen in an animated feature," Verbinski said.

    ILM previously worked with Verbinski to create the octopus-faced Davy Jones character played by Bill Nighy in the "Pirates" pics.

    Depp is set to begin work on "Rango" in January.

    Although the film is only in pre-production, the Gorfaine-Schwartz Agency is now including Rango, Pirates of the Caribbean director Gore Verbinski’s upcoming animation project featuring Johnny Depp, on the resumee of Hans Zimmer. Paramount will release the film in 2011.

    Zimmer’s current films are Ron Howard’s much anticipated Frost/Nixon and Guillermo Arriaga’s The Burning Plain. He also scored Madagascar 2 together with will.i.am and is doing the score for the Da Vinci Code follow-up Angels and Demons, also for Ron Howard, to be released on May 15 next year.
