Disney is working on the new «Pirates of the Caribbean», the central characters of which will be female characters! Johnny Depp in «Pirates of the Caribbean» will be replaced by Margot Robbie. The actress signed a contract for starring in a major role in restarting the cult franchise, but without our outstanding captain Jack Sparrow, writes The Hollywood Reporter. It is reported that the plot of the new movie will be focused on a female pirate. The creators outlined that this is not a spin-off of an original «Pirates», but a completely new female story with new characters.
Scriptwriter and producer Christina Hodson, who had previously collaborated with Robbie on the film «Birds of Prey», is working on the new Pirates of the Caribbean. According to Christina viewers will see new characters and an original story. It is also known that Craig Mazin is working on the restart of «Pirates of the Caribbean» who is also known as a creator of the series «Chernobyl».
In addition to filming the Birds of Prey, Margot and Christina have also created their own project in 2019 called the Lucky Exports Pitch Program that is aimed at involving more female writers to create scripts for movies.
Margo is expected to give full-back to the plot and of course to express the only extravagance. Everyone wants to see a new female pirate with the Barbarossa character and not Elizabeth Swann, ok?
I am sure that Margot can do the job perfectly, as she has already played one of the most eccentric female characters ever – everyone`s beloved Harley Quinn. But the truth is, the Harley character is a heroine who is obsessed with what she considers precious to herself (whether it is a burger or cheese, you know..). The point is that Harley is like a sketch for an inveterate pirate. In fact, wherever Robbie plays, I always enjoy watching and waiting for these projects.
Fans of Johnny Depp were upset that the new franchise movie «Pirates of the Caribbean» won’t start their favorite actor. However, having them both? In any case, I am sure, the movie is gonna be just perfect!
