Weirdly, while it's said this is not a continuation of the story of the previous films, this project is completely separate to the announced reboot.
Instead of involving Jack Sparrow and characters from the past films, the latest movie will not be a spinoff and will not be associated with the other Pirates of the Caribbean project in development. Whatever role Robbie plays and how she chooses to play it, this film just got bumped to the top of my list of most anticipated movies.
Jerry Bruckheimer, who produced all five "Pirates" movies, is attached to produce both the Elliot/Mazin and the Robbie/Hodson projects. Most recently, Robbie starred as Harley Quinn in the DC film Birds of Prey.
Margot Robbie to star in female-led Pirates Of The Caribbean movie
Plot details have yet to be release but according to The Hollywood Reporter, the film is not meant to tie in with the Johnny Depp-starring franchise.
According to THR, this is a wholly new take on the concept of pirates in the Caribbean. Captain Jack's only hope of survival lies in seeking out the legendary Trident of Poseidon, a powerful artifact that bestows upon its possessor total control over the seas. That could be kind of fun, I suppose, although the Pirates franchise as a whole really felt like it ran its course by the final Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales in 2017.
After months of rumors regarding the future of the blockbuster Disney franchise, The Hollywood Reporter has brought word that Birds of Prey screenwriter Christina Hodson and star Margot Robbie are reuniting for a new Pirates of the Caribbean film!
