Apparently not all is lost for fans of the non-PIRATES-based Johnny Depp.

While the film hasn’t been talked about much since it was first announced last year, the actor has revealed a few details to EW about his hotly anticipated documentary based on the life of Keith Richards.

“It’s coming along great,” Depp said in the interview. “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.”

The documentary will also include performances by Richards, with other musicians like Patti Smith and Norah Jones joining him. Depp says that there are “two more installments” of the film left to shoot, and then the editing shall begin. He is set to shoot Tim Burton’s DARK SHADOWS soon, so one would imagine that shooting on this documentary will be done prior to that. It’s been described as a “cross between THE GODFATHER and a painting by Caravaggio,” so if this thing comes to fruition, we may be in for something special.

More on this film as it comes.
