Johnny Depp to Direct Documentary Biopic about Keith Richards

     February 2, 2010


It looks like Jack Sparrow is going to be showing some love to Papa Sparrow as The Playlist is reporting that Johnny Depp will be directing a documentary about the life of Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards.  Depp, whose last film was 1997’s The Brave, tells the European Media:

“Now that I’m wiser, and that enough time has passed, I can experience directing again.  Already 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.”

I’m curious to see if Depp’s documentary will focus on Richards’ entire life or turn its attention to some key moments in the musician’s career.  I hope Depp addresses Richards’ chronic case of being unable to die.
