Johnny Depp to host documentary about Ralph Steadman

Actor Johhny Depp is slated to host a documentary about legendary artist Ralph Steadman. The film is entitled For No Good Reason.

From the synopsis:

Johnny Depp pays a call on his friend and hero RALPH STEADMAN and we take off on a high-spirited, lyrical, raging and soulful journey discovering the life and works of one of the most important radical British artists of modern times.

Steadman rose to prominence in the early 70?s when his impassioned and stirring images gained recognition through popular cultural publications and press both in the UK and US for their bold comment on world politics and human rights infringements.

For no Good Reason is a richly creative, visual feast of a film about the power and importance of art to achieve Steadman?s aim “I learnt to draw…to try to change the world”. Director Charlie Paul spent 15 years meticulously amassing the footage and creating the remarkable animations for the film to match the same anarchic energy, anger and free spirit of Steadman’s pictures. It is riot of stories and images that literally blast out of the screen as we take a trip through the wild and dark days of Steadman?s time and consignments with ?Fear & Loathing in Las Vegas? writer Hunter S Thompson, the Rumble in the Jungle, gun fights with literary giant William S Burroughs and his fiercely heart-felt politics.
