Johnny Depp to direct a Keith Richards documentary
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
It was rumored yesterday that Johnny Depp would be directing a documentary on the Rolling Stones’ Keith Richards and now Variety confirms the news. Depp will, in fact, be starting on the documentary as early as next week. As you know, Richards was the inspiration for Depp’s Jack Sparrow character and the two developed a friendship shortly thereafter.
Johnny Depp’s only other directorial effort was THE BRAVE in 1997. There’s no word yet on exactly what the film will be about, but I’m hoping he’s not just going to follow him on tour or something easy like that. Depp needs to use the opportunity to give us some real insight into who Keith Richards really is.
