Javier Bardem To Play Pirates Of The Caribbean 5 Villain?
The actor is reportedly in discussions to be a 'baddie' in the upcoming sequel...
He's already shown his evil side in Skyfall and with a terrifying turn in No Country For Old Men.
And now there are reports that Javier Bardem will take on the villain role in the fifth Pirates Of The Caribbean film.
According to The Wrap, Bardem has been approached to play Captain Brand in the latest Pirates instalment - a ghost out for revenge on Captain Jack Sparrow.
Signature big-screen baddie Christoph Waltz had been linked to the role, but Bardem is now said to hold the offer.
Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tale is set to begin shooting in Australia next year, with Johnny Depp confirmed to reprise his role as the infamous rogue pirate, Jack Sparrow.
Geoffrey Rush is also rumoured to return to his role as Barbossa, with whispers of other new characters in the pipeline for the new film.
