Paul McCartney will be joining Johnny Depp in Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales. At least for one scene.

The fifth installment of the Disney franchise will see the return of Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow and Geoffrey Rush as Barbosa, with Javier Bardem acting as the film's villain. Orlando Bloom will be also returning as Will Turner, a role he last played in 2007's At World's End. 

The movie has already wrapped production but directors Espen Sandberg and Joachim Ronning will be tacking on an extra scene to the film, which will feature McCartney. 

McCartney is not the first famed English rocker to appear in the Pirates movies. Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards played the swashbuckling dad of Depp's Jack Sparrow in At World's End and On Stranger Tides.

During the height of Beatlemania, the singer appeared with his band mates John, George and Ringo in films like A Hard Day's Night and Yellow Submarine.

The new Pirates will set sail in Summer 2017.
