We won’t pretend to know how Johnny Depp’s mind works, but we think it’s safe to assume that his fans weren’t happy when they read that his potential projects are all currently in flux. According to The Hollywood Reporter, he’s yet to sign on to Enchanted director Kevin Lima’s remake of The Incredible Mr. Limpet. (Depp in a Don Knotts role, we could die happy.) Disney has to search for a new helmer for the fourth Pirates of the Caribbean film since Gore Verbinski bailed (and budget cuts could mean no Orlando Bloom and Keira Knightley). The Lone Ranger pic, to which Depp is attached to play Tonto, is also in need of a director…and a leading man…either of whom could want rewrites. And Depp’s next collaboration with Tim Burton, a big-screen take on TV’s spooky Dark Shadows, could be delayed since Burton won’t begin prepping until he’s done readying their Alice in Wonderland for its March 2010 release.

If you could ask the cinema gods to make one of those projects come together swiftly, which would you choose? From our poll to their ears…
