Ian McShane is in negotiations to play the villain in Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, the fourth installment of the Disney movie series being directed by Rob Marshall according to THR.
McShane will play legendary pirate Edward Teach aka Blackbeard.
He joins Johnny Depp and Penelope Cruz in a tale that revolves around the Fountain of Youth as does the Tim Powers novel the film is based on. The sequel is due out on 20th May 2011.
McShane has previously starred in Deadwood, Coraline, Death Race and Lovejoy amongst others. Personally I think he will make a stupendous Blackbeard. What do you think?
