Margot Robbie to star in ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ female-driven reboot

Margot Robbie

The pair will reunite for a new film separate from the current reboot. The concept of the film was presented to the franchise's insider and story writer, Ted Elliott in the month of October past year.

Margot Robbie has enjoyed quite a bit of success in the acting industry over the years and continues to shine in whatever role she is given.

Pirates of the Caribbean also marks another franchise win for Christina Hodson.

Longtime Pirates producer Jerry Bruckheimer is attached to produce both this and the Elliot/Mazin project. With the previous movies all firmly centred around the weird antics of Depp's Captain Jack Sparrow and some remarkable visual effects, now is a good time to shake things up and give us different stories with a style of their own. The Robbie-Hodson collaboration is being developed separately from another "Pirates of the Caribbean" reboot that was unveiled in October with franchise veteran Ted Elliott and "Chernobyl" creator Craig Mazin hired to develop a story.

Thrust into an all-new adventure, a down-on-his-luck Captain Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp) finds the winds of ill-fortune blowing even more strongly when deadly ghost pirates led by his old nemesis, the terrifying Captain Salazar (Javier Bardem), escape from the Devil's Triangle, determined to kill every pirate at sea... including him.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, a new female-front Pirates of the Caribbean film is coming to Disney, written by Christina Hodson. 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.
