Johnny Depp plans to return to directing with a documentary of The Rolling Stone's guitarist Keith Richards, announced The Playlist (theplaylist.blogspot.com) on February 2. The actor revealed his plans during an interview with Serbian magazine Politika.
Depp's previous directing efforts include the 1997 Native American drama The Brave, starring Marlon Brando.
"Now that I'm wiser, and that enough time has passed, I can experience directing again," Depp told Politika, according to The Playlist's translation. "Already next week I'll start working on a Keith Richards documentary. ... I'm very touched that Keith agreed to show up in front of my cameras."
Depp's portrayal of Jack Sparrow in the Pirates of the Caribean films was said to have been inspired by Richards, and the now 66-year-old guitarist made his acting debut as Sparrow's father Captain Teague in 2007's Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End.
