Throw-Away Scene Opportunity

by Kieran Healy on May 26, 2006

Seeing as Pirates of the Caribbean II is coming out soon, I wonder whether it’s too late to get Johnny Depp back into the studio for a gratuitous falling-out-of-a-palm-tree scene, as a hat-tip to his character’s inspiration. Seems like an obvious option (I mean, _I_ thought of it). Though seeing as Richards had post-accident brain surgery recently, maybe the studio doesn’t want to risk it.

There was talk about Richards appearing in the second film as Depp’s father.

Keef couldn’t do the second one ’cause they were making A Bigger Bang at the time but he is slated to be in the third one filming this year.

For those of you who (like me) are beginning to wonder whether your teenaged kids are right, and your lack of awareness of current cultural trivia is an embarrassment to your family, see here..

When the accident happened somebody on a board I frequent posted about it under the imaginitive title “Keith Richards falls out of a palm tree”. I assumed it was about Pirates II until I clicked through.
