Johnny Depp has revealed that sharing a trailer with Keith Richards for the new Pirates Of The Caribbean film made him feel like they were bandmates.

The Rolling Stone is a hero to the Hollywood heartthrob and Johnny was delighted to work with the rock star again on the new film, Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, in which they play father and son.

Johnny said: "To be able to bring him back into the 'Pirates' fold, where he most certainly belongs, was a gas. Just spending a couple of days sharing a trailer, it was as close, I suppose, as being in a rock 'n' roll band with him as you can get."

The 47-year-old actor also has other projects on his plate, including a cameo in the big-screen adaptation of the 1980s TV hit that made him a star, 21 Jump Street.

He'd heard rumours about the film before being approached for the role, "then it finally came up and the dates were right and it was a gas," he said. "It was a real great experience and I was happy to do it."

He also has The Rum Diary set for release in October, and he'll soon get to work on The Lone Ranger with three-time Pirates director Gore Verbinski.

"We are in the throes of heavy-duty development, script development," he said of The Lone Ranger. "It's coming along very nicely. I think it's going to be something we are going to be proud of."

Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides opens in 3D on May 18th
