Paul McCartney has shared a photo of himself dressed as a pirate for the new Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales.

McCartney, who shared the photo Saturday on social media, is seen in full pirate costume holding playing cards and sporting a long beard with dreadlocks. Check it out below.

The fifth installment of the Disney franchise will see the return of Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow and Geoffrey Rush as Barbosa, with Javier Bardem acting as the film's villain. Orlando Bloom will be also returning as Will Turner, a role he last played in 2007's At World's End.

McCartney is not the first famed English rocker to appear in the Pirates movies. The Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards played the swashbuckling dad of Depp's Sparrow in At World's End and 2011's On Stranger Tides.

During the height of Beatlemania, the singer appeared with his bandmates John, George and Ringo in such films as A Hard Day's Night and Help!

The new Pirates will set sail later this month.
