Brand may be too busy for Pirates of the Caribbean role

Russell Brand may have to turn down the chance to take part in the next Pirates of the Caribbean film because he is too busy.

The love muscle has long been rumoured to appear as the brother of Johnny Depp's lovable rogue Captain Jack Sparrow in the fourth instalment of the Pirates franchise.

But Brand told Access Hollywood that he could be too busy to accept the offer. "There’s been some talk of doing a Pirates movie. But, I’ve got eight other things to do including Get Him To The Greek with Judd Apatow. So I don’t know if there’ll be time to be a pirate, I’ve got enough of that in me private life."
