Film Is Described As A Cross Between 'The Godfather' & Caravaggio



Last year, it was reported by that Johnny Depp was starting work on a documentary about the legendary Keith Richards, one of his inspirations for Captain Jack Sparrow and current franchise co-star and total bud. Obviously, that sounds very exciting but speaking with EW recently, Depp reveals that the project has really just begun with more filming due to take place whenever he or Richards find time in their schedules.

“It’s coming along great,” Depp said. "Any time that he’s got a minute, any time I’ve got a minute. We’ve done one, let’s say, installment that was fairly intense. We shot for a few days, and we got 35 hours of footage. That’s me and Keith sitting and talking in a room that’s very, you know, apropos of Keith. We’re sitting on couches, having a drink, and talking.”

But if you're concerned this is just going to be whittled down to a couple hours of Richards and Depp trading sea sickness tales, guess again. The doc will also include some performances by Richards and his band the X-Pensive Winos and will have some musical luminaries stopping by. “We had Patti Smith, which was miraculous, we had Norah Jones, and I think there’s going to be a few more,” says Depp.

As for when we'll get to see it, the doc still seems a long way off with Depp saying, “I think we’ve probably got two more installments [to film] and then we’ll start cutting it together.” Of course, he's off to film "Dark Shadows" soon and no word on when he and Richards will get a chance to sit down and talk shop. However, Depp does promise a theatrical release for the film -- which is being shot by 'Pirates' cinematographer Dariusz Wolski -- and leaves us a tantalizing description of the project saying it's "a cross between 'The Godfather' and a painting by (famed 17th century Italian artist) Caravaggio. It’s really something to see Keith in that atmosphere.” Although really, you could film Richards at an abandoned garbage dump and he'd still be infinitely cooler than the rest of us.
