Margot Robbie’s Pirates of the Caribbean movie could still happen

Franchise producer Bruckheimer said that while he is prioritizing another Pirates film first, Robbie’s spin-off is still in development.

Few actors in Hollywood have a busier schedule than Margot Robbie. The two-time Oscar nominee has a full dance ticket for the foreseeable future, appearing in big upcoming films like Damien Chazelle’s Babylon, Greta Gerwig’s Barbie, Wes Anderson’s Asteroid City, and an upcoming Ocean’s Eleven prequel.

But the actress recently revealed that one of her previously announced projects – a new Pirates of the Caribbean spinoff – appeared to be dead.

“We had an idea ages ago, and we developed it for a while to be more woman-led — not entirely woman-led, just a different kind of story — which we thought would have been really cool, but I guess they don’t want it,” Robbie said in an interview last month.

“They” likely referred to Disney executives and Jerry Bruckheimer, who has served as executive producer on the franchise since its inception. But Robbie’s comments might not tell the whole story. In a new interview with Collider, Bruckheimer was a little more optimistic about the project. His company continues to develop two separate “Pirate” films and the one without Robbie goes first, but he remains open to making a film with her.

“I think that script will come out at some point,” Bruckheimer said of the Robbie-directed film. “We’ve developed two different stories for ‘Pirates’ and the other one is going ahead first, so we’re working on it to try and make that one.”

Bruckheimer has previously said there are no plans to cast Johnny Depp in future Pirates of the Caribbean films following the scandal-plagued actor’s high-profile defamation lawsuit against Amber Heard. Depp lamented that decision at trial, saying he believes his Jack Sparrow character deserves a better send-off.

“My feeling was that these characters should be able to say a proper goodbye, so to speak,” Depp said. “A franchise can only last so long and there is a way to end such a franchise and I thought the characters deserved to find their way out to end the franchise on a very good note. I intended to keep going until it was time to stop.”
