Close the hatches: the curse of the Caribbean film universe is just around the corner.
Margot Robbie will star in a new female-fronted film, Pirates of the Caribbean, written by Birds of Prey screenwriter Christina Hodson, ET.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, who broke the news, the film will not be a spin-off of the Johnny Depp films about Captain Jack Sparrow and his lot, but rather a “totally original story with new characters” inspired by the Disneyland ride itself has been . (Fans are already speculating that Robbie might play Redd, a pirate from the original attraction.)
This pirate movie, starring Robbie, is separate from the reboot reported last year that is in the works of Craig Mazin, creator of Chernobyl, and screenwriter Ted Elliott (who wrote the first four films in the franchise). Jerry Bruckheimer produces both images.
Depending on when Robbie and Hodson’s shot arrives, it could be the sixth or seventh film that was shot from the drive. This franchise started with The Curse of the Black Pearl in 2003 and continued in Dead Man’s Chest (2006), At World’s End (2007). On Stranger Tides (2011) and Dead Men Tell No Tales (2017).
Which is a lot of Pirates of the Caribbean. But we would never miss the opportunity to watch Margot Robbie force men to walk over the plank.
