Johnny Depp to voice documentary on The Doors?February 10th, 2009 - 11:49 pm ICT by IANS
London, Feb 10 (IANS) Hollywood actor Johnny Depp has reportedly been signed up to narrate a documentary on American rock & roll band of 1950s - The Doors.
Contactmsuic.com reports that Depp will voice the film on the band titled “When You’re Strange”.
Directed by Tom DiCillo, the movie premiered at the Sundance Film Festival last month with a narration track by DiCillo himself, but it is thought Depp will record an updated version.
“Johnny saw the film early on. We showed him an early cut and he responded very strongly to the subject matter,” said producer Peter Jankowski.
The iconic rock band supposed to have sold more than 60 million records so far enjoyed huge success in the 1960s with songs such as “Riders on the Storm” and “Light My Fire”, but split up in 1973 when singer Jim Morrison was found dead.
