POTC film featuring Margot Robbie scrapped!

From the Walt Disney World News and written by: Michele

Disney fans worldwide seem to love the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise, myself included. Johnny Depp and his supporting cast have become important, basically irreplaceable, for the films. I’m mean, there’s only one Captain Jack Sparrow! Awhile back it was announced that actress Margot Robbie would be taking the lead in the next Pirates film, instead of Johnny Depp.

As most of you know, there’s been quite a riff between Depp and Disney in recent years. This past summer, Johnny Depp won his defamation suit against his ex wife, Amber Heard. Fans immediately rejoiced and were calling on Disney to make a public apology which has yet to happen. But what about behind the scenes?

In a new article in Vanity Fair, Margot Robbie was asked about the Pirates of the Caribbean film, and here’s what she had to say-

“We had an idea and we were developing it for a while, ages ago, to have more of a female-led—not totally female-led, but just a different kind of story—which we thought would’ve been really cool, but I guess they don’t want to do it,” she says of Disney.

So, what does this mean for the POTC film franchise? Will they end the series? Or maybe Johnny Depp could come back? In court, Depp stated that he was previously working on the next Pirates installment, and wanted to give Captain Jack Sparrow a proper send off for the fans. However… he also said that he’d never work with Disney again after all he’d been through. I suppose we will find out soon enough, but this current tidbit of info sure has people wondering!

What’s your opinion? Would you like to see another Pirates of the Caribbean film? Or do you think it’s time to move on from the franchise? Tell us about it in the comments!

For me, I’d love to see Johnny Depp return one more time as the beloved Captain Jack Sparrow!
