Keith Richards to join ON STRANGER TIDES?
Let the rumor train get its wheels running.
Rumors are beginning to hit the web (via The Playlist) that one Keith Richards may reteam with his best buddy Johnny Depp in the upcoming fourth installment of PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: ON STRANGER TIDES.
Richards was the much talked about source of inspiration for the look of Depp’s character, Jack Sparrow, and was then cast as Sparrow’s father in the last PIRATES film, AT WORLD’S END. Depp is currently shooting a documentary himself on the rock legend, so if Richards does indeed join the cast that already includes Penelope Cruz, Ian McShance, Geoffrey Rush, this will definitely allow Depp to get a lot more footage of the star.
I haven’t been the biggest fan of the PIRATES films, so this news does nothing to really hinder or aid in my anticipation, however, I am truly interested in Depp’s upcoming documentary. Richards has lived an insane life (as well documented it) so it should be a really interesting film. At least I hope so.
