Johnny Depp, who plays Captain Sparrow, has been trying to persuade Richards to make a cameo for months, after revealing his character was based on the guitarist.
It was thought The Rolling Stones tour schedule stood in the way, but Depp was confident - earlier this month (JUL05) he said, "It's looking very good."
And Nighy - who plays DAVEY JONES in PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: DEAD MAN'S CHEST - is happy to end the speculation.
The British actor says, "I can confirm, Keith Richards will appear in Pirates of the Caribbean 2 or 3. I'm not sure which one, because they are being filmed back to back."11/07/2005 09:15
