While we’ve heard how a Pirates of the Caribbean reboot was in the works, now comes word that Margot Robbie will be headlining a separate Pirates movie for Disney.
The Hollywood Reporter broke the news, with Birds of Prey star Robbie on board to front what’s been pegged as a female-driven Pirates of the Caribbean picture. Robbie will team with Birds of Prey screenwriter Christina Hodson on the film.
Plot details are being kept to a minimum right now, but the movie will reportedly not be a spin-off from the long-running established Pirates franchise. Instead, this will be an original story with new characters.
As ever, expect more on both of this new Pirates of the Caribbean offerings as they continue to develop.
