A new name has been added to the cast credentials of the upcoming Pirates of the Carribean: Dead Men Tell No Tales film. Sir Paul McCartney is set to act opposite Johnny Depp in the fifth instalment of the series, marking the second time a music legend has been involved in the movie franchise. Keith Richards starred in Pirates of the Carribean: At World's End, however the details of McCartney's role have yet to be disclosed.

The highly anticipated film sees Depp return as the iconic Captain Jack Sparrow, while Orlando Bloom also reprises his role as Will Turner. There's also another newcomer on set — Javier Bardem, who will play the villain Captain Salazar.
