Margot Robbie in Female-Centric PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN Movie by BIRDS OF PREY Writer?!

Johnny Depp OUT?! Birds of Prey alumni actress Margot Robbie and screenwriter Christina Hodson are reportedly teaming up to develop a female-centric Pirates of the Caribbean movie for Disney. The thing is, this appears to be a SEPARATE project from the rumored soft reboot by Pirates of the Caribbean veteran scribe Ted Elliott.

From The Hollywood Reporter…

“While plot details are being kept in Davey Jones’ locker, the project, in early development, is not intended to be a spinoff of the long-running franchise that had pirate Jack Sparrow at its center but rather a wholly original story with new characters under the Pirates moniker, itself inspired by the long-running attraction at Disneyland.

The new project is said to be separate from the already announced reboot of the popular franchise that has Pirates scribe Ted Elliott and Chernobyl creator Craig Mazin developing the story.

Longtime Pirates producer Jerry Bruckheimer is attached to produce both the Elliot/Mazin project and this new Robbie/Hodson project.”

It’s interesting that Disney is developing two Pirates films, seemingly side-by-side, but apparently unconnected. Or is Disney looking at creating a “Pirates Cinematic Universe” with multiple characters having separate stories that will eventually lead to an Avengers-like team up movie?

With rumors swirling about the fate of Johnny Depp’s Captain Jack going forward, could Disney just be throwing spaghetti against the wall to see which one sticks better?
