Blackbeard, fly: Paul McCartney joins 'Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales'

Here's Johnny Depp in 'Pirates of the Caribbean 5'

Boy, Disney will do anything to get their hands on your booty, won't they? According to Deadline, Sir Paul McCartney will make an appearance in the upcoming Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales. Shooting for the film itself has wrapped, but it seems McCartney's appearance is "not a re-shoot, but rather an extra scene." In fact, McCartney's appearance will be the focus of "an extra big set-piece scene," which hopefully suggests a fantastical pirate musical number, though of course it could just mean, like, a boat or some such.
