A slew of interesting new details have come to surface for the impending sequel Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, which has Johnny Depp signed to return as Captain Jack Sparrow for a fifth time.
The Daily Mail is reporting that Keith Richards will return as the pirate Captain Teague, who also happens to be Jack's biological father. The pair will team up to battle Captain Brand in a search for a mythical trident.
In this new story, Teague holds valuable information in the search of a mythical trident. The ghost of Captain Brand wants to use the weapon on Jack to exact revenge, believing that Sparrow is responsible for turning his brother Eric to a life of piracy, which ultimately ended in his death.
There will also be a romantic interest for Jack this time around, as he becomes enchanted with Barbosa's daughter Carina Smyth. This beautiful 30-year-old woman is believed to be a witch, but in actuality, she is just a very accomplished astronomer. She rebuffs Jack's advances, fearing the wrath of her father. The female character has not yet been cast, though Geoffrey Rush is set to reprise his role as Barbossa.
