UPDATED WITH CLEARER IMAGE!! British Paper Reveals Keith Richards In PIRATES 3!!

Merrick here... Bilge Rat (what a name for a source...LOVE IT!) sent in two more images of Richards, posted below. The first is this pic of Richards on-set, which I believe has been around for a bit.
The second is a wider, clearer shot of the same image we posted yesterday. Which, you can see by by CLICKING HERE!

Merrick again...
This one's pretty straight forward. We all know Rolling Stone's Keith Richards...the inspiration for Johnny Depp's performance in the PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN films...will appear in AT WORLD'S END. Over the weekend, British papers released an image of what he'll look like in the film. I haven't seen this pic making the rounds yet, so here he is:
Big thanks to the folks who sent this in!

    Keith Richards is scarier when he's not dressed like a pirate.

    Is his pirate buddy Mick going to be hanging out with him?

    Yes this is a Pirates movie and they have lots of money

  • Feb. 12, 2007, 10:10 a.m. CST

    These movies aren't great...

    by Childe Roland

    ...but they are (arrgh) great fun. And if Richards iks playing Depp's dad, that's note perfect casting. If he plays his geet fiddle in this, so much the better. I'm there for this sequel to round out what's been an entertaining ride, regardless.

  • Feb. 12, 2007, 10:10 a.m. CST

    Wow! So it's true!

    if Depp wasn't in them then I would be pretty sure we wouldn't have seen any sequels.

    help myself. Keith looks scarrier in real life! Arrrrhhhh, wild horsies me matties!

  • Feb. 12, 2007, 10:59 a.m. CST


    by Max Zorin

    It's kinda lame if Jack Sparrow is just like his Dad. It takes away from the idea of him being a rogue and an individual. If we were introduced to Indiana Jones' dad and he wore a fedora and a leather jacket and cracked a bullwhip we'd all feel cheated. 'wait a second, this guy is just ripping off his old man. That sucks.' I know most guys end up growing into their Dads a bit, but to dress like him and presumably act like him is just creepy and needy. 'I just wanted you to notice me Dad.' And the cats in the cradle and the silver spoon.... Just as long as every single character in this film doesn't end up being a pirate at some point. The last one was like silly sentences. Wait, were you writing Jack Davenport as a good guy? Uh, yeah. Why? Crap. I been writing him as a bad guy. I thought we'd agreed. Have you read the rest of the script man? Seriously, that's going to be, like, the smallest problem people have with this film. Trust me.

  • Feb. 12, 2007, 11:06 a.m. CST

    Looks cool.

    by the Grobe

    If I had to bet, I'd say this is a shot of Keith on set playing his own guitar, not an official still. I have enough faith in the set designers to believe his movie instrument, if he played one, would not be an anachronism and would also look a lot more interesting.

  • Feb. 12, 2007, 11:15 a.m. CST

    But if you look can see his silver nads....

  • Feb. 12, 2007, 11:15 a.m. CST

    His dad?

    by Freefinger

    Should've been cast as is great grand-father if ya ask me! Cool anyways... And why not have him in there, Depp acted great to be like hiim, at least Richards won't have to act to look like an has-been-drunk/cokeaddict/screwedup pirate.. easiest acting part of his life!

  • Feb. 12, 2007, 11:19 a.m. CST

    Is this gonna be some Frasier bullshit?

    by jollysleeve

    I remember once there was an episode of Frasier that showed the brothers as kids. And it was fucking retarded (especially for a show that had the reputation for being intelligent). Basiclly they had the Frasier and Niles characters looking and acting just like they do as adults. You know, carrying briefcases or whatever, to school. Like it was the Muppet Babies or something...... The Keith Richards pirate cameo looks similar. It looks like they're dressing him up to be an older version of Jack Sparrow. Heck, they might even try to get Richards to do a bad imitation of Depp's unique performance. That would be awful, and really dumb. And it actually detracts from the coolness of the iconic Sparrow character rather than compliments it.

  • Feb. 12, 2007, 11:31 a.m. CST

    Will the floodgates open for new Pirates films?

    by Doctor_Sin

    Will we now see Gene Simmons or Ozzy as guest-starring villains a la the 1960s "Batman" series?<p>"Pirates 4: Demon From the Deep" guest-starring Gene Simmons as The Demon. "Yaaarrr, matey! I be the God of Thunder!"

  • Feb. 12, 2007, 11:38 a.m. CST

    That looks.....

    ...nothing like Keith Richards.

    by PwnedByStallone

    if Keith Richards entrance in this film doesn't have him falling out of a fucking palm tree...THE MOVIE IS A FAILURE!

  • Feb. 12, 2007, 11:56 a.m. CST

    I just got off the phone with Keith Richards...

    by Childe Roland

    ...and I asked him how he felt about being in this movie. His reply: "Appy Keef. Appy, appy Keef." He then vomitted into the phone.

    by Mgmax

    Wow, a famous rock star has a bit part in a shitty sequel to a shitty sequel to a mildly watchable blockbuster. Not since Sam Phillips (the blonde singer not the guy who owned Sun Records) played a generic Teutonic villainness in Die Hard 3 have I not given so big a shit.

    by connor187

    Was Dead Mans Chest nothing more than big load of monkey spunk? it didnt seem to have any drive to the story. I missed it at the cinema and watched it recently on pay per view and I have to say I didnt enjoy it. It felt like it was made by a bunch of suits who clearly only had their eye on one thing, money and nothing else. I read that it was going to be the Empire Strikes Back of the trilogy..YEAHFUCKINGRIGHT!!!

  • Feb. 12, 2007, 1:35 p.m. CST

    Why no trailer?

    by Jor-El23

    The movie comes out in May right? And they shot 40% of it with part 2. you would think there would be at least a teaser on part 2's DVD or a bonus scene at the end credits or something. Anyone else think it's weird that we have no trailer yet?

  • Feb. 12, 2007, 4:26 p.m. CST


    by Mel Gibsteinberg

    I agree that Dead Man's Chest was indeed not as good as the original. IMO it was the special effects that got in the way. One of the things that was so enjoyable in the first, was all the banter and back and forth with REAL ACTORS! But with DMC they went the Lucas route and started adding prosthetics and CGI to every character, after awhile it gets boring. Rush was great, but he wasn't a freaking skeleton the whole time, which made the transormation an actual impact. If you overuse your magic, you lose any impact. Its like the common criticism of comics that overuse the splash page. If you fill an entire comic book with nothing but splash pages, you have a cool looking couple of frames with nothing substantial to hold onto.

    Keith Richards "huffy and indignant"

    by AllPowerfulWizardOfOz

    I enjoyed POTC2. It was a mindless popcorn movie. I expected such and nothing more. Richards probably won't have much screen time in this latest and hopefully final chapter but it should be amusing. If this picture is real he looks pretty much how I thought he would in the movie.

    by LargoJr

    I'll admit, the first film was fun, and I absolutely LUST after the Sexiest Tomboy Beanpole on the Planet Kiera Knightly... but the 2nd movie was about as 'Meh...(shrug)' as Superman Returns. All the Elements, were there, and beautifully filmed, but it lacked heart. I can only see this as more of the same, and gives me that awful sick feeling in my gut with the whole shitastic 'Oceans' series instills when you hear just how many MORE stars they will drag in for a whole 'nother round of "Gee.. aren't we being clever?"

    This is nice. Richards will be a role model for kids everywhere. I guess his days of paying for an illegal medical procedure that has his entire bloodstream replaced with that of clean, non-drug-addicted virgins so he can leave the country are behind him. There's hope for all of us.
