(Relaxnews) – The actor and producer will take part in “Tusk,” the forthcoming feature from the director who gained a cult following in the 1990s with “Clerks” and “Mallrats.”

News of Johnny Depp’s involvement was revealed by Justin Long, the star of “Tusk,” in an interview with Long-island.newsday.com. According to Thewrap.com, the 50-year-old actor will likely play a French Canadian police officer, Guy Lapointe, in this off-beat suspense movie.

Slated for release in late 2014 in the US, “Tusk” revolves around the investigation led by a journalist (Justin Long) into the intriguing life of Mr. Howe, an adventurer with a bizarre fascination with walruses. The latter character will be played by Michael Parks, who starred in the horror movie “Red State,” Kevin Smith’s last film.

Before shooting “Tusk,” Depp will return to North American theaters April 17 in “Transcendence.” The sci-fi film is directed by Wally Pfister.
