The fifth installment of the hit Disney franchise will feature the return of Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow, while Geoffrey Rush will reprise his role as Barbosa, and Orlando Bloom will be back as Will Turner, a character he last played onscreen in 2007's "At World's End." Javier Bardem will portray the sequel's new villain.
Directors Espen Sandberg and Joachim Ronning have taken charge of the new "Pirates of the Caribbean" movie, which is due to set sail in May, 2017.

Meanwhile, McCartney is no stranger to Hollywood, having made his big screen debut in Beatles films "A Hard Day's Night" in 1964. He also appeared in "Help!" and "Yellow Submarine," while his more recent acting credits include a stint on a live episode of Tina Fey and Alec Baldwin's hit TV comedy "30 Rock" in 2012, and a voiceover role in TV cartoon series BoJack Horseman last year.
