Margot Robbie to star in new ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ movie for Disney

Birds of Prey screenwriter Christina Hodson tabbed for a new female-fronted Pirates story

Margot Robbie is teaming up with Birds of Prey screenwriter Christina Hodson for a new female-fronted Pirates of the Caribbean story, The Hollywood Reporter reports.

The film is reportedly an all-new story, and not a spinoff of the Johnny Depp-led original series of films. The Margot Robbie project is likely not connected to the forthcoming Pirates of the Caribbean reboot helmed by writer Ted Elliott and Chernobyl creator Craig Mazin.

Robbie recently injected some much needed life into Warner Bros.’ DCEU series with her reprisal of Harley Quinn in Birds of Prey.
