Action-comedy shooting in Los Angeles

Aubrey Plaza, Oliver Platt and Jeff Goldblum have joined Johnny Depp’s action comedy “Mortdecai,” currently  shooting in Los Angeles.

The film, based on the three-novel anthology by Kyril Bonfiglioli, had wrapped its London shoot.

Gwyneth Paltrow, Ewan McGregor, Olivia Munn and Paul Bettany are also starring. David Koepp is directing from a screenplay by Eric Aronson.

Andrew Lazar, Depp, Christi Dembrowski and OddLot’s Gigi Pritzker are producing the project. “Mortdecai” is the first project between Lionsgate and OddLot Entertainment as part of a multiyear, multipicture co-financing and distribution deal.

Depp is portraying Charles Mortdecai, an antihero art dealer and part-time rogue who is in a race to recover a stolen painting rumored to contain the code to a lost bank account filled with Nazi loot.
