Keith Richards has confirmed he will return as Captain Teague for the fifth 'Pirates of the Caribbean' movie

Keith Richards will return for the fifth 'Pirates of the Caribbean' movie.

The Rolling Stones guitarist is unsure when the next installment of the swashbuckling franchise will start filming but he knows he will again make an appearance as Captain Teague, the father of Johnny Depp's lead character Captain Jack Sparrow.

He said: "So they say, you know, I've got the costume, and I'm waiting for the heads up, but apparently there is.

"I don't know if it'll be next year that we shoot it or whatever, but as I say, you know, I got the costume and the beard and the shirt."

The 'Brown Sugar' rocker will know when he is required as soon as he hears from his friend and co-star Johnny.

He added to Absolute Radio: "I'll wait for a call from Johnny."

Keith 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'.

While Keith knows he is returning for the film, Penelope Cruz - who played Angelica Teach in the last installment - recently admitted she doesn't know if she'll be back.

She said: "Have I heard anything? No, I haven't. I haven't read a script. I haven't heard anything. With Johnny and the director Rob Marshall, it's like anything. But I don't mean movies. I consider them my friends. And I really love them and respect them."

The Rolling Stones

The legendary rockers, fronted by Mick Jagger, perform their recognisable hits from across the decades including Satisfaction, Paint It Black and Brown Sugar, as well as some surprises thrown in for good measure. Special guests in London on their No Filter tour include Liam Gallagher on Tuesday and Florence + The Machine…
