Johnny Depp has decided to don his director’s beret for the second time to direct a documentary about legendary Rolling Stones guitarist and walking methadone clinic Keith Richards. Depp has allegedly amassed a metric fuckload of footage. Of what remains to be seen. I don’t know if Richards sat down with Depp for interviews ala the fantasmorgaistic It Might Get Loud. Perhaps it will be concert footage or maybe behind the scenes movie writing. I’m extremely interested in seeing what a documentary biopic looks like, particularly one about a subject who is still very much, albeit inexplicably, alive.
Actually, all I’m hoping for is five minutes of Johnny Depp imitating Richards to Richards while watching Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End. It would be so meta it might actually cause a parallax rift.
