A new trailer for Pirates Of The Caribbean: Salazar’s Revenge was released last week over the weekend.

It has recently been reported that Paul McCartney will make an appearance in Pirates Of The Caribbean: Salazar’s Revenge

Filming had apparently already wrapped on the film when the Beatles legend was added to the cast. According to Deadline, an extra scene was added to allow McCartney to make his cameo. Details of his role have not been disclosed yet,

His cameo follows Rolling Stone Keith Richards appearing as Captain Teague in Pirates Of The Caribbean: At World’s End and Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides. Teague was the father of Captain Jack Sparrow, as played by Johnny Depp, who cited Richards as an influence on the way he played the character.
