Johnny Depp has been hoping for months now that Keith Richards would throw on the boots and join him as his father for the sequels to the hit Disney film Pirates of the Caribbean. Jack Sparow needs a father, and who is a better fit than who the character is based off of?

Richards first announced that he would not have any time to work in a cameo for Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest due to his world tour with the Rolling Stones. He later retracted this announcement and was caught hanging around Disney trying on a couple Pirates outfits. Things looked good and it seemed that Richard's involvement was going to become official. However, the story continues to grow and Richard's seems to have a fear of Disney.

There is nothing official either way, though it does look like Richards is now leaning more towards the 'NO' end. In a report by Sci-Fi Wire, they claim that Richards is most likely off of the project.

Johnny Depptold SCI FI Wire that the much-hoped for cameo by Rolling Stones star Keith Richards may not happen after all. Richards was supposed to play the father of Depp's pirate character, Captain Jack Sparrow; Depp has famously said he modeled his Oscar-nominated performance as Sparrow in part on the legendary rocker.

Depp said in an interview that Richards has met with the filmmakers, but nothing has been shot. "No, it's sort of not totally official yet," Depp said at the Toronto International Film Festival, where he's attending the debut of director Tim Burton's Corpse Bride. "It might be. Everyone is trying. He's got a little tour to do," he added, referring to the Rolling Stones' current world tour.

They also go on to say that Richards was quoted telling Depp that 'the idea of working for Disney gives him the shivers in the first place.' To be honest, that is a pretty horrid excuse from dealt - with - worse Keith; isn't Eisner out of the picture? Maybe Richards and Disney are trying to cover up the fact that he has a cameo in order to retain the illusion of surprise. Those jokers!

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest comes to theatres on July 7th, 2006.
