The British actor - best known as intimidating character Combo in 2006 crime drama 'This is England' - will play the character Scram in the fourth instalment in the movie franchise, Production Weekly reports.
Johnny Depp recently revealed he loves portraying eccentric Captain Jack, and says is excited to begin shooting the sequel.
He said: "I can't wait to get back in costume. Some people will say, 'Aha Depp sold out by doing the sequels.'
"But it was never an issue for me. I love Captain Jack so much I'd do 'Pirates 7' if they asked."
Filming is due to begin on 'Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides' this summer ahead of a cinema release in May 2011.
