Johnny Depp to Co-Star with Daughter Lily-Rose in New Movie

Aug 20, 2014 2:47pm

Johnny Depp is bringing his daughter to work with him.

The actor’s 15-year-old daughter, Lily-Rose Depp, has landed a starring role opposite her famous dad in Kevin Smith’s new film, “Yoga Hosers.”

Dubbed a “comic book movie,” the film, which starts shooting this week, also stars Smith and his teen daughter Harley Quinn Smith.

In a statement, Smith said, “People always ask me ‘Are you ever going to make a comic book movie?’ This is it — but instead of yet another dude saving the day, our antiheroes are the most feared and formidable creatures man has ever encountered: two 15-year-old girls.”

This is not Lily-Rose’s first onscreen appearance. She and Harley had cameos in Smith’s previous film, “Tusk,” which will premiere next month at the Toronto Film Festival. The girls will reprise their roles in “Yoga Hosers,” as the crime-fighting Colleens, who join forces with Johnny Depp’s character to battle evil, “all seven Chakras, one Warrior Pose at a time,” according to producers.

Though Depp has largely kept Lily-Rose and her brother Jack, by former partner Vanessa Paradis, out of the public eye, lately his daughter has been forging her own path.

In her personal blog, she waxes philosophical about being the offspring of famous parents, writing, “I gain a lot and I lose a lot.”
