Fingers crossed that this pairing brings out the best of Depp ("Benny & Joon") rather than his recent tired commercial endeavors (see our Depp Career Watch). The early footage of Depp as Tonto in Disney's already over-budget "The Lone Ranger" did not wow the hordes in Hall H at Comic-Con.

"Harry Potter" star Daniel Radcliffe will star in his first romantic comedy with Zoe Kazan ("Ruby Sparks"). "The F Word," scripted by Elan Mastai and included in the 2008 Black List, will be directed by Michael Dowse ("Goon"). The story follows Radcliffe as he tries to be the first male to successfully have a platonic relationship with a girl he likes, only to discover she's already in a relationship. The "F" in the title is for "friend." The script is based on the play "Toothpaste and Cigars," written by T.J. Dawe and Michael Rinaldi.

"Goon" producers David Gross and Jesse Shapira ("No Trace Camping") will produce with Marc Stephenson and Hartley Gorenstein. The film shoots in Toronto this August.

Fox Searchlight opens Kazan's "Ruby Sparks" on July 25.
