Producer Jerry Bruckheimer has revealed the role that Oscar-winning actress Penelope Cruz will play in next summer’s highly anticipated swashbuckling sequel Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides.
He tells MTV:
She plays the daughter of Blackbeard. She’s the daughter of the bad guy. [there will be] a little romance between Captain Jack and the character that Penelope plays. She brings a lot of humor to it … she’s so feisty.
Bay also announced that he is currrently casting for new characters and that “Deadwood’s” Ian McShane will be playing Blackbeard, the “nastiest pirate ever.”
