Johnny Depp adds another film to his slate, and takes his wife along for the ride...

...as she will be starring in the film as well. Here's the story from Coming Soon:

Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis will star in My American Dream, to be directed by Lasse Hallström . Depp and Paradis have been together for 12 years and have two kids. Hallström previously directed Depp in What's Eating Gilbert Grape.

Depp said that "Vanessa plays the French feminist Simone de Beauvoir and I play her lover Nelson Algren who is real macho." He's expected to make the film in 2011.

The actor is currently shooting The Tourist and will follow that thriller with Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides.

About the fourth "Pirates" installment, Depp said: "In the earlier films there were so many subplots that the audience, and even I, was sometimes confused. The next part is fun, a lot of fun."

In related news, Hallström has reportedly replaced Tomas Alfredson in the director's chair for The Danish Girl as well. The sex-change drama stars Nicole Kidman and Gwyneth Paltrow.

-Thoughts?
