Margot Robbie has landed the lead role in a new Pirates of the Caribbean movie with Disney. The film will be written by Christina Hodson, the screenwriter for Bumblebee and Birds of Prey, the latter of which also starred Margot Robbie.
Here’s everything we know so far…
What Do We Know So Far?
According to the Hollywood Reporter, we know very little about the plot. In fact, you might say we know next to nothing.
Here’s what THR writes:
While plot details are being kept in Davey Jones’ locker, the project, in early development, is not intended to be a spinoff of the long-running franchise that had pirate Jack Sparrow at its center, but rather a wholly original story with new characters under the Pirates moniker, itself inspired by the long-running attraction at Disneyland.
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.
Longtime Pirates producer Jerry Bruckheimer is attached to produce both the Elliott/Mazin project and this new Robbie/Hodson project.THR
That’s about it, as far as this new Margot Robbie Pirates film goes.
I wish there was more to share, but at this time, details are very limited.
They must have claimed parley! 😉
