Female-Led ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ Movie Scrapped by Disney

In a recent interview with Vanity Fair, actress Margot Robbie shared that plans to produce a female-centered ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ have officially been scrapped by Disney.  In 2020, Robbie announced that a storyline for the next installment in the franchise was in the works.  The film was to be a continuation of the Pirates films, featuring new characters and new storylines.  In speaking with Vanity Fair, Robbie stated, “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, but I guess they [Disney] don’t want to do it”.  Disney has yet to announce what the future holds for Johnny Depp, who notably has played Jack Sparrow, in all of the other films.
