We’ve known for a while that another ‘weird’ Pirates Of The Caribbean movie is coming, and Margot Robbie is still involved too.

Here’s an update on a story that we’ve been reporting on now for a good few years. It’s zigged and zagged a few times since then, but according to series producer, Jerry Bruckheimer, a Pirate Of The Caribbean film starring Margot Robbie in a female-centric movie is still happening.

We first heard about this project all the way back in 2020. Apparently, Disney had plans to make two very different Pirates Of The Caribbean movies to continue the popular swashbuckling series that already boasts six films. The plans back in 2020 were to develop a female-led version which would be headlined by Margot Robbie alongside another ‘weird’ film with an all-new cast. The latter version was based on a script penned by Chernobyl creator Craig Mazin and Ted Elliott, the writer behind the original Pirates films.

Then in 2022, reports surfaced to suggest that the Margot Robbie-led version had been abandoned with Robbie herself stating that Disney ‘didn’t want to do it.’

However, series producer Jerry Bruckheimer popped up not long afterwards to suggest that both installments of the series were alive and still on the table at Disney. Then things went very quiet to the point that many folks assumed it wasn’t happening anymore. However, Disney has a new head at the studio in the form of David Greenbaum so perhaps things might move a little more quickly now.

Jerry Bruckheimer didn’t offer a lot in the way of detail this time out, but he did tell Entertainment Weekly (via Deadline) that, “we hope to get ’em both made, and I think Disney agrees they really want to make the Margot one, too.”

As far as the Robbie project goes, that’s the first we’ve heard about it in quite some time and perhaps Greenbaum’s appointment as Disney’s studio head might finally pave the way for her Pirates film.

We’ll let you know as we hear more on either of these projects.
