Johnny Depp to work on book imprint with HarperCollins

  • Oscar-nominated actor Johnny Depp is to launch a book imprint in conjunction with HarperCollins, the publisher announced on Tuesday.

    Depp will focus on books that reflect his interests and passions, providing a home for "outspoken and visionary ideas and voices," HarperCollins said in a press release.

    In a statement, Depp said the new imprint would "deliver publications worthy of people's time, of people's concern. Publications that might ordinarily never have breached the parapet."

    One of the titles under the new imprint, which is called Infinitum Nihil, includes The Unraveled Tales of Bob Dylan by author Douglas Brinkley and aims to set the record straight on several issues related to the folk singer. It is scheduled to be published in 2015.
