Oscar winner Christoph Waltz is in talks to play the villain again in the fifth Pirates Of The Caribbean movie.

Reports suggest Rolling Stones star Keith Richards has already signed on to reprise his role as the father of Johnny Depp's Capt. Jack Sparrow and now sources tell CinemaBlend.com that Django Unchained star Waltz is negotiating a leading role.

The fifth film in the franchise, subtitled Dead Men Tell No Tales, will be released in 2016.
