NEW YORK (AP) - Johnny Depp is getting serious about the book business.
HarperCollins Publishers announced Monday the movie star and musician will help run an imprint that will be a home for "authentic, outspoken and visionary" books.
Depp is starting off big: a compilation of Bob Dylan facts and stories, based in part on exclusive interviews with the songwriter himself. The interviews were done by best-selling historian Douglas Brinkley, who also will help Depp publish a recently discovered novel written by folk musician Woody Guthrie, who died in 1967.
The imprint will share its name with Depp's production company: Infinitum Nihil, meaning "Nothing is forever."
