Johnny Depp to star in 'King of the Jungle'

Hollywood star Johnny Depp will play a cyber mogul in dark comedy King of the Jungle.

The 53-year old actor is on board to portray McAfee antivirus creator John McAfee in the based-on-true-story movie.

The film will be directed by Glenn Ficarra and John Requa from a script written by Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski reported Ace Showbiz.

An adaptation of a "Wired" article titled 'John McAfee's Last Stand' by Joshua Davis, King of the Jungle will see a "Wired" magazine investigator who "accepts what he thinks is a run-of-the-mill assignment to interview McAfee, but once he arrives in Belize, he finds himself pulled into McAfee's escalating paranoia, slippery reality and murder."

Depp will next be seen in Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell no Tales, reprising his role as Captain Jack Sparrow. He will also star in Agatha Christie's Murder on the Orient Express and crime drama LAbyrinth.
