If you follow along with the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise, you know that the film series isn't the shining jewel it once was, as evidenced by the critical and commercial performance of the most recent entry, Dead Men Tell No Tales.

Margot Robbie will star in a new Pirates of the Caribbean with Birds of Prey writer Christina Hodson joining her to pen the script.

Pirates of the Caribbean producer Jerry Bruckheimer will also produce this version, which is still in development.

It marks the latest bid by Hollywood to re-imagine classic movies by casting women in the lead roles, including the 2016 reboot of Ghostbusters starring Melissa McCarthy and 2018 comedy heist Ocean's 8 that starred Sandra Bullock and Cate Blanchett.

Margot Robbie To Re-Team With BIRDS OF PREY Writer For New PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN Movie

The film is being written by Christina Hodson, who also worked with Robbie on Birds of Prey. In fact, this character is set in the same universe as Sparrow which means this is not a reboot, but simply a new story in the Pirates of the Caribbean world.

The Indian Express is now on Telegram. Margot Robbie is in talks to star.

The Pirates of the Caribbean films have featured, Hollywood actor, Johnny Depp as the interesting character of Captain Jack Sparrow. With the previous movies all firmly centred around the freakish antics of Depp's Captain Jack Sparrow and some remarkable visual effects, now is a good time to shake things up and give us different stories with a style of their own.
