Studio Eventually Clues Into Fact That You Don't Need New Book To Learn That Richards Was A Willful Drug Abuser



A minor brouhaha arose a couple of days ago when it was suggested that aging, still-alive rocker Keith Richards might be getting snipped from the forthcoming "Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides" due to "Life," the warts and all memoir by the axe-slinger hitting bookshelves this week. The book had Richards talking quite candidly about his past drug use and the rumors went that Disney brass were suddenly not comfortable with putting his worn and ragged mug in front of impressionable school children.

Well, Disney has calmed the rising tides hitting Facebook (via Cinematical) yesterday to say, "Fear not Pirates fans, we are happy to confirm that Keith Richards will be returning as Captain Teague in Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, setting sail May 2011!"

This should relieve parents everywhere who will inevitably be dragged to this fourth installment which, if it's anything like the last couple of sequels, will be excessively long and make absolutely no sense. This time in 3D! We totally forgot how soon this movie is set to dock in theaters so we'd guess that marketing will begin in earnest soon enough. Put X on the calendar on May 20, 2011 because that's when this ship will sail and it will include Keef.
