Keith Richards to join Johnny Depp and Penelope Cruz in Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
In an interview with Reuters where Keith Richards is talking about his upcoming autobiography (which looks like a great read, by the way), it’s revealed that Richards is going to be reprising his role as Jack Sparrow’s father in the fourth PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN film, ON STRANGER TIDES. So this basically confirms that everyone that starred in the first three films is returning for the fourth, except for Orlando Bloom and Keira Knightley. Yes, I understand that their story is wrapped up and the franchise must go on, but I’m still disappointed.
This time around, we follow the adventures of Jack Sparrow as he searches for the fountain of youth. The fourth film is set to star Johnny Depp, Penelope Cruz, Geoffrey Rush, Gemma Ward, Ian McShane, Stephen Graham, Sam Claflin and Astrid Berges-Frisby. Rob Marshal is handling directing duties this time around and the film will hit theaters May 20th, 2011.
