News of the fifth instalment in the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise has been rare since confirmation of its subtitle Dead Men Tell No Tales.
So far, only Johnny Depp has been confirmed to return for another outing as Captain Jack Sparrow, however it's been reported that Christoph Waltz (Inglourious Basterds, Django Unchained) is currently being courted to play the lead villain while Keith Richards is rumoured to be back as Jack Sparrow's father Teague.
This is still firmly in the rumour stage at present but it would be intriguing to see Waltz playing such a major role in one of the biggest franchises ever. If he is cast, it's said he would play Captain Brand, a ghost who wants the Trident so he can get his revenge on Jack for turning his brother into a pirate.
