Johnny Depp to Direct Documentary About Keith Richards Confirmed 2010-02-05 10:29:48

Johnny Depp to Shine a Light on Keith Richards

Ready to get a full rundown on the life of Keith Richards? Variety has confirmed the rumor that Johnny Depp will be directing a documentary about the Rolling Stones guitarist.

Richards would be intriguing source material (remember when he joked about snorting his dad?), but it's made more interesting that Depp is behind the camera. It's well known that Richards is the inspiration behind Depp's famous Pirates of the Caribbean character (Richards even made a cameo in the last installment of the franchise).

This isn't the first time Depp has directed — in 1997, he helmed The Brave — nor is it his first time directing a doc about a musician: he made a short documentary about John Frusciante in '93. I'm very curious about the results of Depp and Richards, though; what about you? Are you excited for this project?

This news made me quite excited- but after reading Scorsese is doing a documentary about George Harrison my excitement for this project fell flat a bit.. Whoa, why did I not know about that? But both sound like fantastic projects and can't wait for either to come out already.

Between this and that Scorsese documentary about George Harrison that's coming out, I will be set for a long, long time.
