Disney cancels Margot Robbie's 'Pirates of the Caribbean' movie.
The proposed film, led by a female actress, would have seen her reunion with 'Birds of Prey' writer Christina Hodson.
In a new Vanity Fair interview, Margot Robbie revealed that Disney had abandoned plans for a Pirates of the Caribbean spin-off film that would have reunited her with Birds of Prey writer Christina Hodson.
"We had an idea, and we were developing it for a while, ages ago, to have more of a female-led — not totally female-led, but just a different kind of story — which we thought would've been really cool," Robbie told the outlet about the proposed project with Disney. "But I guess they don't want to do it."
In June 2020, Hypebeast announced that Robbie was chosen to star in the new stand-alone Pirates of the Caribbean movie. Variety later confirmed this news and reported that Jerry Bruckheimer--the man who produced all five Johnny Depp Pirate films--was also working on this project.
The now-scrapped film aimed to introduce new characters inspired by the long-running Pirates ride at Disneyland, under the franchise banner-- not center Depp's Jack Sparrow. Notably, the franchise's previous movies grossed $1.5 billion domestically and $3.07 billion globally.
Robbie's next project is appearing in Damien Chazelle's Babylon with Brad Pitt, Tobey Maguire, Diego Calva, Jovan Adepo, Li Jun Li, and Jean Smart.
