Margot Robbie to Star in New PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN Movie for Disney

Margot Robbie to Star in New PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN Movie for Disney
Oscar nominated actress Margot Robbie ("Bombshell", "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood") has signed on to star in a new female-fronted "Pirates of the Caribbean" movie for Disney, which will be completely separate from the already announced franchise reboot that is in developement by "Pirates" scribe Ted Elliott and "Chernobyl" creator Craig Mazin.

The screenplay will be penned by "Birds of Prey" and "Bumblebee" writer Christina Hodson. The film, which is currently in early development, is not intended to be a spinoff, but rather an original story with new characters set in the "Pirates" world. Jerry Bruckheimer is attached to produce both the reboot and this standalone installment.

The "Pirates of the Caribbean" franchise has proven itself extremely lucrative for Disney. The five films starring Johnny Depp have grossed a total of $1.5 billion domestically and $3.07 billion internationally.

Hodson, who is at the moment one of Hollywood's most sought-after blockbuster writers, is also set to write the scripts for the DC superhero movies "The Flash" and "Batgirl".

Robbie will also return to the DC Comics universe in James Gunn's "The Suicide Squad" sequel.
