Margot Robbie Pirates Of The Caribbean: According to the Oscar nominee, Disney has cancelled the spinoff of the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise that she was set to star in.
Robbie made her comments in a Monday issue of Vanity Fair, while Disney was unavailable for comment.
Robbie lamented, “I guess they don’t want to do it because we had an idea and we were developing it for a while, ages ago, to have more of a female-led—not female-led, but just a different kind of story—which we thought would’ve been cool.”
Margot Robbie’s Pirates of The Caribbean Spinoff Killed By Disney
Originally scheduled for release in June 2020, the film based on Disney’s theme park attraction franchise has since found a new writer. The Curse of the Black Pearl, Dead Man’s Chest, At World’s End, On Stranger Tides, and Dead Men Tell No Tales all came out between 2003 and 2017; the franchise as a whole is one of the highest-grossing film franchises of all time, with a total worldwide gross of more than $4.5 billion.
Disney fired Johnny Depp from his long-running role as the boozy pirate Captain Jack Sparrow after his ex-wife Amber Heard made allegations of “sexual violence” and “domestic abuse” against him in a 2018 op-ed for The Washington Post.

Depp sued the Aquaman actress for defamation in Virginia earlier this year and won, but he testified that “nothing on earth” could get him back to the franchise after his bad experience with the studio.
While promoting the classic Hollywood epic Babylon, in which she stars alongside Brad Pitt, Diego Calva, and many more, Robbie commented on the cancellation of her Pirates of the Caribbean project. On December 23rd, Paramount Pictures will release “First Man,” a new film written and directed by Oscar winner Damien Chazelle (La La Land).
Robbie’s schedule continues to be packed even without the Disney spinoff. Her acting resume also includes the upcoming Warner Bros. films Barbie and Wes Anderson’s Asteroid City, as well as an untitled Ocean’s Eleven films that she will produce.
