Dec. 10 (UPI) --
Photographers spotted Johnny Depp
, now sporting a brassy blonde hairstyle
and a mustache, filming an action scene from his upcoming crime film Mortdecai
, in which he plays a roguish art dealer searching for a stolen painting that could point the way to a horde of Nazi gold.
Depp, who turned 50 last June, wears socks, garters and boxers in the picture, which shows him scuffling with another character.
An official set photo released last month shows Depp in character alongside Paul Bettany.
Rounding out the Mortdecai cast is Ewan McGregor, Gwyneth Paltrow and Olivia Munn.
