Johnny Depp wants to be placed in a “whisky cask” at his funeral, so mourners can drink from it.
The Hollywood actor is currently starring in The Rum Diary, which is based on the novel of the same name by Hunter S. Thompson.
Johnny’s morbid idea was inspired by the late author, who committed suicide in 2005. He requested his ashes be fired from a cannon on top of a tower.
Now Johnny has other ideas following his own death.
"I could go in a whisky cask and everyone can take a sip,” he told British newspaper The Sun.
Johnny honoured his friend's wish following his death at the age of 67. The American actor reportedly spent two million dollars to have a tower and cannon erected for Hunter’s funeral in Colorado.
"Hunter had dreamed of a special way to go. He wanted to be fired from a cannon,” he explained. "Brilliant! So I built a huge cannon after his death in 2005 and fired his ashes into the sky."
Johnny is starring as journalist Paul Kemp in the Bruce Robinson-directed The Rum Diary, which also features Amber Heard and Aaron Eckhart.
