These days, most big-name games with movie tie-ins have all the major voice talent from the feature film, and it appears that Pirates of the Caribbean: The Legend of Jack Sparrow will be no different. Bethesda Softworks today announced that Johnny Depp (who was actually nominated for an Oscar for his role in the first flick) will lend his voice as Captain Jack Sparrow in the upcoming videogame, slated for a June 27 release.
“We are thrilled to have Johnny Depp working on this project,” says Todd Vaughn, executive producer of The Legend of Jack Sparrow. “We couldn’t imagine a better way to capture the spirit of the character than to have Depp lend his voice to Captain Jack Sparrow. It truly adds to an already rich gameplay experience.”
The Legend of Jack Sparrow will be available for the PS2 as well as the PC.
