Rolling Stone finally agrees to film

Keith Richards has finally been signed up to appear in one of the two Pirates of the Caribbean sequels.

The Rolling Stone will play Captain Jack Sparrow's father, co-star Bill Nighy has confirmed reports

He said: "I can confirm, Keith Richards will appear in Pirates of the Caribbean 2 or 3. I'm not sure which one, because they are being filmed back to back."

Earlier this month Johnny Depp revealed he was still trying to convince Richards to appear in the film as his father.

Depp said he was the perfect choice for the role after revealing his character was based on the guitarist.
