Johnny Depp has revealed his bizarre funeral wish – he wants to be put in a drum of whisky, which mourners can drink from.



This idea is inspired by his late friend, the US writer Hunter S Thompson, who had requested that his ashes be fired from a cannon atop a tower.



"I could go in a whisky cask and everyone can take a sip," the Sun quoted Depp as saying.



DeppThe actor plays the role of his hellraising friend in his latest movie The Rum Diary.



After Thompson’s death, Depp spent a reported two million dollars to have a tower and cannon built for the 2005 send-off at Thompson’s farm in Colorado.



"Hunter had dreamed of a special way to go. He wanted to be fired from a cannon," said the actor.



"Brilliant! So I built a huge cannon after his death in 2005 and fired his ashes into the sky," he added.
