Hollywood superstar Johnny Depp missed filming re-shoots for his new movie ‘Mortdecai’ this week after falling sick.

The 51-year-old ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ star was due at Pinewood Studios in England to shoot more scenes for the action comedy, but the production was cut short when the lead actor cancelled because of ill health, reported Daily Mirror.

“The re-shoot is only meant to last seven days, so missing a whole day is a big deal. Johnny must’ve been really under the weather (sic) not to arrive at all. Everyone will have to work extra hard now to get it done,” a source said.

A spokesman for Depp said, “He was sick and (the) production was aware that he would not be working.”

Depp stars as an art dealer searching for a stolen painting in ‘Mortdecai’, which is scheduled for release in January next year.
