Hollywood star Margot Robbie is set to play the lead role in Disney’s female-led Pirates of the Caribbean film. The screenplay of the film will be written by Birds of Pre writer Christina Hodgson.
Jerry Bruckheimer, who produced all five Pirates films – Curse of the Black Pearl, Dead Man’s Chest, At the World’s End, On Stranger Tides, and Dead Men Tell No Tales – is tied to producing the untitled film, which Disney Is in early development.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the new film will not be a spin-off of the long-running franchise featuring Johnny Depp’s pirate Jack Sparrow, but it was a completely original story with new characters under the pirate moniker.
The project is also different from another Pirates of the Caribbean reboot that was announced in October last year with franchise legend Ted Elliott and Chernobyl producer Craig Majin developing a story.
Margot will also be seen by James Gunn as Harley Quinn in a suicide rebellion. In May, David Eyre, the director of the original film, said he looked forward to seeing the reboot. Eyre wrote and directed the Suicide Squad, starring Jared Leto and Margot, but the film’s release in theaters is said to be different from his point of view. Fans are asking whether the film’s Aires cut should be released or not.
The reboot, titled Suicide Squad, is currently scheduled to hit screens in August 2021. However, it is unclear whether the release will be affected by the coronovirus epidemic.
