Margot Robbie’s pirates are boarding the ship and gearing up for a brand new project, and we could not be more excited! Everyone remembers the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise, right? Who could forget Johnny Depp’s iconically silly, yet sly portrayal of Captain Jack Sparrow. The films started way back in 2003 and came to an end in 2017, or so we thought. Now, Margot Robbie is slated to produce and star in a new reinstallment of the films, set in the exact same world but with different characters. This version of the Pirates world is set to be much more focused on female characters and their stories. There are no concrete plot details as of yet as it is still early on in the pre-production phase, but we are extremely excited to see what Robbie can bring to the franchise. In recent years she has continued to dominate the cinema as a total powerhouse of an actress. Get ready to set sail for a new Margot Robbie adventure.

Margot Robbie’s Pirates As A New Starpower To The ‘Pirates’ Franchise  

In recent years, Margot Robbie has played the quirky Harley Quinn, perfectionist Tonya Harding, and the iconic Sharon Tate in Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. It is no question that Robbie has extreme star power and talent. The Pirates of the Caribbean franchise is beloved by so many people, and Robbie seems like she could be the perfect fit for a new spinoff. While no plotlines are set in stone, we do know that the new film will be set in the same world as Jack Sparrow, but this time around the story is going to be a little more female-centric. Birds of Prey writer, Christina Hodson, is said to be teaming up with Robbie once again, according to the Hollywood Reporter, to flesh out a more female-fronted story for the pirate franchise. Hodson is no new-comer to big-screen credits either. Some of Hodson’s recent writing projects include Birds of Prey, Bumblebee, and Unforgettable

Margot Robbie has shared her passion for strong female characters. In fact, herself and Hodson have also recently teamed up in 2019 to launch the Lucky Exports Pitch Program, which allows for women in the entertainment industry to be heard as writers and creators in the action movie realm. The goal of the program is to help gain traction for female filmmakers and make their projects pitch-ready to large companies. Robbie and Hodson are both quite familiar with the franchise world, so it’s no question why this duo would get picked up to revamp the ever-so-charming ‘Pirates’ movies. 

Hollywood Hit Straight Ahead with Margot Robbie’s Pirates!

It’s not a shocking statement to say that Margot Robbie has become one of the most sought after actresses in the business. Ever since the Wolf of Wall Street, all eyes have been on the actress. Robbie steals every scene she’s in with charming ease and her projects only seem to keep getting bigger and bigger. Off the heels of Birds of Prey and Bombshell, a pirate role is going to be a bit of a mix up for the Hollywood star. But it’s one we are excited to see regardless. After the most recent ‘Pirates’ movie, a change in pace is welcomed with open arms. The fifth installment in 2017, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, did not quite live up to the previous swashbuckler films.

In the year of 2017, Disney was also releasing Beauty and the Beast starring Emma Watson and the second Guardians of the Galaxy film. The fifth film had the lowest-grossing opening day of the franchise, and it felt like the series of films would never quite recover. Regardless, the news of Robbie’s new venture into high waters is exciting for fans of the ‘Pirate’ films. While Johnny Depp did the franchise justice, we think it’s the perfect time to hear from some more female pirates. The studio’s idea to rebrand and revamp the franchise is overall an incredibly smart decision, seeing as how this franchise has been so very successful over the years.

Disney knows how to handle a franchise. They are the people behind Marvel and Pixar after all. Across all five installments, the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise has accumulated a whopping $4.5 billion. Though there are many details to still be sorted out, Jerry Bruckheimer is also attached to the new Pirates film, as he produced the previous films of the franchise as well. Between Bruckheimer, Robbie, and Hodson fans are sure to get another exciting adventure on the dangerous and exhilarating waters of the fictionalized setting. Fans are in for all new characters, histories, and exciting plots. Although, we do secretly hope that there will at least be some alluding to past characters and events of the franchise!
