Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales has added another aging rock star to the line up. With Keith Richards playing the part of Captain Teague in both At World's End and in Stranger Tides it would seem that directors Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg (Kon Tiki) have decided to go a similar route and have cast Sir Paul McCartney. No news on who McCartney will play, but we do know that McCartney will have screen time with Depp. McCartney was not part of the original shoot schedule and directors have gone and added an additional shots to the film that were not apart of the original screenplay. These new shots were built around McCartney’s character. From our understanding this is not a reshoot, but rather added scenes.
Here’s the official synopsis for Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales:
"Thrust into an all-new adventure, a down-on-his-luck Captain Jack Sparrow finds the winds of ill-fortune blowing even more strongly when deadly ghost pirates led by his old nemesis, the terrifying Captain Salazar, escape from the Devil’s Triangle, determined to kill every pirate at sea…including him. Captain Jack’s only hope of survival lies in seeking out the legendary Trident of Poseidon, a powerful artifact that bestows upon its possessor total control over the seas."
Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tale hits theaters on May 26, 2017 and stars Johnny Depp, Javier Bardem, Orlando Bloom, Geoffrey Rush, Brenton Thwaites and Kaya Scodelario.
