Johnny Depp directing a Keith Richards documentary

02.03.2010

Seeing as Tim Burton doesn’t have any wacky classic characters for him to reinvent any time soon, it seems that Johnny Depp might be moving in a different direction in the near future, as according to him, he’s planning to start shooting a documentary about Keith Richards as of next week.

“Now that I’m wiser, and that enough time has passed, I can direct again. Next week I’ll start working on a Keith Richards documentary. While I’m in Drvengrad, my editor is already working on kilometers of archive footage and footage of his concerts. I’m very touched that Keith agreed to show up in front of my cameras.”

Many of you will know that Richards of The Rolling Stones is a friend and icon of Depp’s and is said to be the inspiration for many of the mannerisms of Captain Jack Sparrow (hence why Richards eventually showed up in the series). That role help boost Depp’s career immensely, and now it seems he’s trying to return the favor to Richards. Not that either man’s career really needs “boosting” per se.

This marks Depp’s second ever directorial effort, his first being THE BRAVE starring himself and Marlon Brando back in 1997, a film that never secured domestic release. Will his new effort about Richards be more of a success? I don’t know, but at least we’ll have some good tunes to rock out to while we’re watching it.

Extra Tidbit: I predict a Depp-less PIRATES reboot SPIDER-MAN-style rather than a fourth film.

I've always loved Keith and the Stones-but these type of documentaries I just cannot watch. Eh.
