Margot Robbie to star in female-centric Pirates of the Caribbean

Margot Robbie

The new project is said to be separate from the already announced reboot of the popular franchise that has Pirates scribe Ted Elliott and Chernobyl creator Craig Mazin developing the story.

A new Pirates of the Caribbean movie is reportedly in the works withBirds of Prey star Margot Robbie and screenwriter Christina Hodson teaming up once again for the film. No plot details were provided, but this project is described as "a wholly original story with new characters under the Pirates moniker". She would follow it up with Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn), the Robbie-led Suicide Squad spinoff that hit theaters earlier this year which, though receiving generally positive reviews from critics and audiences, did fall short of its break-even point at the box office, and is now attached as the writer for DCEU's The Flash and Batgirl. Jerry Bruckheimer, a longtime producer of the franchise, is attached to produce. Margot Robbie has been tapped to take a leading role, but it's in an entirely different movie than those showcasing Captain Jack. The upcoming venture is expected to be a reboot version of Pirates of the Caribbean. The writer has credits on Bumblebee, The Flash, which could see Michael Keaton reprise his role as Batman, and Birds of Prey.

Trump called his supporters racists great people
Senator Tim Scott , the only black Republican member of the Senate, was quick to denounce the president. "That's what I think". At one point in the video , a man in a golf cart adorned with Trump flags yells " white power " at anti-Trump demonstrators.

Evidently Disney is so eager to bid adieu to the Jack Sparrow era of Pirates of the Caribbean that it's willing to explore multiple new paths forward. It's hard to say whether both projects will ultimately move into production or just one.
