Deadwood‘s Ian McShane is in negotiations for Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides villain Blackbeard.
The Hollywood Reporter says McShane will play the legendary pirate – whose real name was Edward Teach – who piloted the ship Queen Anne’s Revenge.
Johnny Depp will reprise his Captain Jack Sparrow role and Geoffrey Rush will return as Barbossa. THR also states Penélope Cruz will be “Jack Sparrow’s foil and equal in many ways,” (so very exciting!) in a tale that revolves around the Fountain of Youth – which was teased in the latest POTC installment: At World’s End (2007).
Terry Rossio and Ted Elliot wrote the script. Jerry Bruckheimer is producing.
