Margot Robbie’s female-led “Pirates of the Caribbean” may not have been dead on after all. The Oscar nominee claimed last month that Disney didn’t want to make her “Pirates” movie, which has been in development for several years, but franchise producer Jerry Bruckheimer Collider said This is not entirely the case. Bruckheimer said that while another “Pirates” script is moving forward with Project Ruby, that doesn’t mean a female-centric homage is no longer possible.
“I think that scenario will come forward at a certain point,” Bruckheimer said. “We developed two different stories for ‘Pirates’ and one is going forward first, so that’s what we’re working on, to try to make that story.”
diverse It was reported in the summer of 2020 that Disney was in early development of a “Pirates” Robbie movie as well as a second reboot written by veteran Ted Elliott and “Chernobyl” creator Craig Mazin. Bruckheimer, who produced all five Pirates movies starring Johnny Depp, was always attached to both projects. It was confirmed in June 2020 that Robbie will star in Disney’s new “Pirates of the Caribbean” movie by “Birds of Prey” screenwriter Christina Hodson.
Bruckheimer said Sunday times May revealed that both projects were still in development at the time, adding, “Yes. We’re talking to Margot Robbie. We’re developing two ‘Pirates’ scripts — one with her and one without him.” [Will Johnny Depp be back?] Not at this point. The future has not yet been decided.”
