L'il Jack Sparrow

Apparently young Dominic Scott Kay has been cast as the younger Jack Sparrow in the third Pirates film (reported by iesb amongst others). Will there be a Pirate Kids sequence - like the Zorro Kids action in last year's Legend of Zorro? Dear lord, I can see it now.

Of course there's a risk, suggested by the casting of this youngster, that we won't now get to see Johnny Depp and Keith Richards share the screen - about the only genuine promise in the film, if you ask me. We know Richards is playing Sparrow senior - but will it only be in a flashback, alongside L'il Jack?

Actually, I don't know if we have much to worry about - I expect Daddy Keith will be set up in flashbacks and then encountered 'on the other side' by the dead, adult Jack.
We'll soon see.
