Keith Richards confirms Pirates of the Caribbean return after Crossfire Hurricane premiere – movieScope
The Stones lit up the London Film Festival last night with their appearance on the red carpet of Leicester Square, prior to the screening of the HBO-funded documentary directed by Brett Morgan, which uses archive footage to recreate the band’s first attempts to break America in the late 1960s and early 1970s.
The band are to tour on the back of the documentary – one of the biggest films to be shown at this year’s festival – and have also floated the idea of performing at Glastonbury next year.
The guitarist, 68, from Dartford, Greater London, confirmed to Absolute Radio this morning he will again make an appearance as Captain Teague, the father of Johnny Depp’s lead character Captain Jack Sparrow, but is unsure when the next installment of the franchise will start filming.
He said: “I’ve got the costume, and I’m waiting for the heads up, but apparently the film is going to happen.
“I don’t know if it’ll be next year that we shoot it or whatever, but I’ve got the costume and the beard and the shirt.”
Richards previously appeared in the last two movies in the series, Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End and Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides.
