According to Baz Bamigboye of London’s Daily Mail Online (via The Playlist), Dame Judi Dench has filmed a cameo for Rob Marshall’s Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides.
The story describes a chase scene that opens the film (SPOILERS if you want to remain surprised):
“On Stranger Tides starts with a chase sequence described as a bit like Charlie Chaplin getting away from the Keystone Kops involving Depp’s character Captain Jack Sparrow. Cap’n Jack escapes into a carriage belonging to a noblewoman, played by Judi. As he ravishes her, he manages to rob her.
Dench appeared in Marshall’s previous film, the musical Nine and opposite Johnny Depp in the Oscar-nominated Chocolat ten years ago.
Although it’s meant only as a short appearance of just a few minutes, you can see how it turns out when Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides opens on May 20, 2011.
