Margot Robbie is making an entrance into the ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ franchise. The multiple Oscar nominee is set to lead an all-female version of the film series, which has over the years served as a defining feature for Johnny Depp in Hollywood.
According to multiple sources giving insight to the developing project, the Margot-led feature will not be a spinoff but rather a remake with a different storyline and a whole new cast set to play. ‘Birds of Prey’ writer Christina Hodson is attached to pen the script for the film with Jerry Bruckheimer producing.
Shaking up the 2020 award season with two hit films ‘Bombshell’ and ‘Once Upon a Time in Hollywood’, Margot has in past years made her character picks on the big screen a depiction of female power. In 2017, she played skater Tonya Harding in ‘I,Tonya’ and followed it up with the 2020 DC action/superhero film ‘Birds of Prey’ where she played Harley Quinn. She has also played Queen Elizabeth I in ‘Mary Queen of Scots’ starring opposite Saoirse Ronan.
Repped by CAA, Management 360, AMM and attorney Jeff Bernstein of Jackoway Austen, Margot’s acting file is yet to be full as the actress has more scripts to play. She will next be seen in James Gunn’s ‘The Suicide Squad’ and work alongside Academy award nominated director Greta Gerwig on a feminist ‘Barbie’ film.
