For those lucky enough to catch a glimpse Johnny Depp is currently parading around the grounds of the Old Royal Naval College in Cutty Sark Gardens, Greenwich, as eccentric pirate Captain Jack Sparrow.

On Monday his stunt man could be seen falling onto a fast-moving carriage for the fourth instalment in the massively successful franchise called On Stranger Tides.

But photographers wanting a memento of the action were told that the ‘image’ of Captain Jack Sparrow was copyright to Walt Disney Pictures Disney who are the film’s distributors.

The latest film follows Depp and Captain Barbossa, played by Geoffrey Rush, as they embark on a quest to find the elusive Fountain of Youth.

Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides is due to open in cinemas on May 20 next year.
