Taika Waititi To Play Blackbeard In HBO Max Comedy Our Flag Means Death

The prolific Taika Waititi will now star in, in addition to producing, the upcoming HBO Max comedy series Our Flag Means Death, according to Deadline.

Waititi joins the previously announced series lead Rhys Darby, who will play Bonnet. Darby and Waititi have worked and also acted together on the HBO series Flight of the Conchords and the film What We Do in the Shadows.
