The Hollywood Reporter says McShane will play the legendary pirate–whose real name was Edward Teach–who piloted the ship Queen Anne’s Revenge.

McShane will join Johnny Depp, reprising his role of Captain Jack Sparrow, and Penelope Cruz, Sparrow’s foil and equal in many ways, in a story that revolves around the Fountain of Youth.
