Steven Tyler Writing Song with Johnny Depp

After Steven Tyler revealed to Billboard.com that he and Johnny Depp were planning to write a song together, Depp has confirmed that the pair is hard at work on a new track.

"We've been hanging out here and there," the actor told Extra at the "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides" on Saturday (May 7). "He's someone I've admired greatly for such a long time. The idea of writing songs with him is a dream come true."

The Aerosmith singer said last week that he and the actor have been collaborating in his "American Idol" downtime. "He asked me, he said, 'I want you to come over' -- he's got a studio here in L.A. -- 'and see if I'm playing "Seasons of Wither" right.' I said, 'Y'know what, Johnny? No matter how you play it, it's gonna be right. It's a beautiful thing,'" said Tyler.

Tyler -- who also discussed his new autobiography, "American Idol" experience and his new solo single, "(It) Feels So Good" -- said that he would want Depp to play him in a movie version of his life. When asked about the hypoethetical casting, Depp said, "I'll give it a shot. Why not?"
