Margot Robbie is ready to sail on an andventure in caribbean waters as a capatain in a new female-led Pirates of the Caribbean movie from Disney.
Christina Hodson, the screenwriter of Harley Quinn movie Birds of Prey, is writing the new female-led disney film, which isn't intended to be a formal spin-off of the Disney franchise, but rather a separate original story with new characters.
The film is currently in the early stages of development, and this project is also separate from the already announced reboot of the popular franchise that has Pirates scribe Ted Elliott and Chernobyl creator Craig Mazin developing the story. Jerry Bruckheimer, who produced the previous POTC films, will also produce this movie and the Elliot/Mazin reboot.
Only bad news for the fans is, there will be no role or scene of Captain Jack Sparrow in this film.
Pirates of the Caribbean is one of the most lucrative film franchises of all time, grossing over $4.5 billion on five feature films. Johnny Depp has headlined the Pirates franchise since the first 2003 movie as swashbuckling, rum-drinking Captain Jack Sparrow. He's appeared in all the films so far, most recently in 2017's Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales. That film currently has the lowest cumulative lifetime box-office gross of the previous installments.
Christina Hodson is one of Hollywood's go-to blockbuster writers, with credits that include Transformers spinoff Bumblebee, as well as DC superhero projects The Flash, which now has Michael Keaton reprising his famous role of Batman, and Batgirl.
Robbie's recent features include Bombshell and Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, and she will next be seen in James Gunn's The Suicide Squad sequel.
