Johnny Depp's Keith Richards Documentary Still On

(Radio.com) For years, there's been talk of a Keith Richards documentary directed by Johnny Depp, with the working title Happy. But little has been heard of that in recent months, particularly with all of the Rolling Stones activity around their 50th anniversary, including their current tour and their own documentary.

But in a lengthy Stones feature in the new issue of British magazine Mojo, a sidebar reports that further work on the documentary took place in April.

"We shot a bit 'round Johnny's house," Richards told the magazine, adding that Tom Waits, Waddy Wachtel (guitarist in Richards' solo band the X-Pensive Winos) and drummer Jim Keltner were present at the shoot as well.

Depp famously based his Captain Jack Sparrow character from the Pirates Of The Caribbean films on Richards, and Richards played his father in two of the installments in the series.

In January of 2011, Depp told Entertainment Weekly, "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." more on this story
