London: Hollywood superstar Johnny Depp refused to stay in a five-star hotel and instead opted for a mansion complete with a huge wine cellar while shooting for his new film.

The 47-year-old actor, who is currently shooting in London for `Dark Shadows`, demanded a vintage wine cellar during his entire stay, reported the Daily Star.

"Johnny`s very picky. He`s also shipping over crates of home-made wine from his vineyards. He`s demanded the cellar to be a particular temperature," said a source.

The `Pirates of the Carribean` star has also shipped his wife Vanessa Paradis, 38, and children Lily Rose, 12, and John Jack, nine, to the UK while making his new film.

Scheduled to release next year, `Dark Shadows` is a gothic-horror tale centering on the life of vampire Barnabas Collins and his run-ins with various monsters, witches,
werewolves and ghosts.

The film also stars teen actress Chloe Moretz and `The Deal` star Michael Sheen.
