Film star Johnny Depp is getting into book publishing, and he's kicking things off with a release about Minnesota music legend Bob Dylan, reported USA Today.
HarperCollins is teaming up with Depp to create the imprint Infinitum Nihil -- which is also the name of the actor's film production company. Infinitum Nihil means "Nothing is forever."
The first of what the publisher promises to be "authentic, outspoken and visionary" books from Depp's imprint will be "The Unraveled Tales of Bob Dylan."
It will be authored by historian Douglas Brinkley, who recently interviewed Dylan for a candid feature in Rolling Stone.
In a statement, Brinkley said Dylan "has been very warm and forthcoming with us. His music has inspired us both deeply since we were teenagers."
The Dylan book is set for a 2015 release. Fans who can't wait that long to read about Dylan can soon see the Hibbing native in-person in St. Paul.
Depp most recently starred in the big-screen version of the classic vampire soap "Dark Shadows," directed by his frequent collaborator Tim Burton.
