Margot Robbie to lead second Pirates of the Caribbean female-led movie

June 27th, 2020 by Marc Comments

Ok, bit of a confusing one, here.

So, you may recall a few weeks back we reported that Doctor Who and Jumanji star Karen Gillan was set to lead a Pirates of the Caribbean reboot (likely) without Johnny Depp (here) by original Pirates writer Ted Elliott and Chernobyl creator Craig Mazin.

Well, it seems that, yes, that is the plan, but a second reboot project is also now in the works too.

Birds of Prey writer Christina Hodson is reteaming with Harley Quinn actress Margot Robbie for a new female-led  Pirates adventure at Disney.

“The project, in early development, is not intended to be a spin-off of the long-running franchise that had pirate Jack Sparrow at its centre, but rather a wholly original story with new characters under the Pirates moniker, itself inspired by the long-running attraction at Disneyland.”

Longtime Pirates producer Jerry Bruckheimer is to bring both movies to the big screen.

We all know the star power of the always great Robbie and Hodson has also penned Transformers spin-off Bumblebee and is working on The Flash which has Michael Keaton set to return as Batman, so the talent all round is solid for sure.

We’ll keep you posted as and when we get more details, folks.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
