Margot Robbie confirms that the 'Pirates of the Caribbean' reboot has been canceled
Disney does not want to continue with the project that the actress was going to star in.
Actress Margot Robbie has confirmed that Disney has scrapped plans for its Pirates of the Caribbean reboot.
The 'Suicide Squad' star revealed the news during an interview with Vanity Fair, saying: "We had an idea and we were developing it for a while, a long time ago, to have more of a movie directed by a woman, not fully carried out. done by women, but at least we wanted to do a different kind of story, which we thought would have been cool, but I guess they don't want to do it."
The Robbie name had been attached to the franchise since 2020, when plans to make a female-led spin-off film were announced. The project would have seen the actress reunite with 'Birds of Prey' screenwriter Christina Hodson and focus on a whole new set of characters.
The movie wasn't the only project planned for the 'Pirates of the Caribbean' franchise either, as rumors of a possible reboot have been circulating since 2018.
Like the Robbie spin-off, the project's future is also quite uncertain as it has faced multiple setbacks, including the departure of the film's writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, the makers of 'Deadpool'. The possible involvement of Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow has also not been made clear.
Meanwhile, it's been a busy year for the actress who plays Harley Quinn, who has been busy filming Greta Gerwig's upcoming Barbie movie alongside Ryan Gosling, Emma Mackey, and Ncuti Gatwa. Without a doubt, this title from the director of 'Little Women' is one of the most anticipated films of the coming 2023.
The actress will also star in the 1920s Hollywood film 'Babylon' alongside Tobey Maguire ('Spider-Man') and will reunite with Brad Pitt after 'Once Upon a Time in...Hollywood'. Both films will be released in 2023. 'Babylon', directed by Damien Chazelle, will arrive in January while Barbie's will have to wait to see it until July.
Robbie can currently be seen in David O. Russell's comedy thriller Amsterdam alongside Christian Bale and John David Washington.
'Amsterdam' is now in theaters since last October 28.
