Russell Brand on Pirates 4 rumour
One of the strangest rumours about Pirates of the Caribbean 4, was that Russell Brand could be joining the cast. He was rumoured to be playing Jack Sparrow's brother.
Now someone has asked Brand himself about the rumour, and I still don't know if it's possible or not.
It was early October when we heard the rumour that not only could Tim Burton be directing the fourth Pirates film, but that Russell Brand could be playing Jack Sparrow's brother. It all seemed a bit unlikely, but stranger things have happened. MTV asked Brand about the rumour:
I’ve seen some talk about that matter but I think they’re still writing the script. I am having a skull and crossbones tattooed on each of my nipples in anticipation of the plotline. I just hope it doesn’t affect my other work in Jane Austen adaptations.
It wasn't a flat out no, but it wasn't exactly a serious reply either. So we're going to have to wait before we find out if it's true or not. Would you want Russell Brand in Pirates of the Caribbean 4?
