Rock legend Keith Richards is teaming up again with Captain Jack Sparrow.
Rolling Stones rocker Keith Richards is returning to the big screen by reprising his role opposite Johnny Depp in the next Pirates Of The Caribbean movie. Depp has long credited the rock guitarist with inspiring his popular character Captain Jack Sparrow in the swashbuckling franchise, and Richards joined the cast to play the actor’s on-screen father in the third installment of the movie series, At World’s End.
The new film, Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, has a new director (Rob Marshall) and new co-stars for Depp. Keira Khightley and Orlando Bloom are no longer in the series. Geoffrey Rush is back as Barbossa and, along with Depp, is the only lead actor to be in all four films. Penelope Cruz will be setting sail with Depp as his love interest. No word on how large of cameo Richards will have this time.
The plot for this fourth installment involves Jack Sparrow and Barbossa embarking on a quest to find the elusive fountain of youth, only to discover that Blackbeard and his daughter are after it too. Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides opens on May 20, 2011.
