Proving that even a casting gag can be taken out of context, Sir Paul McCartney is following in the footsteps of fellow musician Keith Richards in joining the Pirates Of The Caribbean franchise for the upcoming fifth instalment, Dead Men Tell No Tales.
Due for release on May 26th, 2017; the film will reportedly see McCartney share screen time with series lead Johnny Depp as a character created specifically for the Beatles icon in a scene added after the completion of the initial screenplay.
Kon Tiki directors Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg helm the sequel, which sees Depp’s Captain Jack Sparrow search for the trident of Poseidon. Javier Bardem, Orlando Bloom, Geoffrey Rush, Brenton Thwaites and Kaya Scodelario also star.
