Margot Robbie will be the protagonist of a new installment of ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ that will follow the adventures of a female character with a totally different plot from the original movie.
According to The Hollywood Reporter magazine, this project by Disney and Robbie has nothing to do with the announced new version that Craig Mazin, the creator of the acclaimed miniseries ‘Chernobyl’, is working on.
Specifically, the film starring Robbie will not feature the character of Jack Sparrow, made famous by Johnny Depp, and will introduce new references in this film universe.
With a total of five films, ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ is one of the most lucrative franchises in cinema, which has grossed more than 4,000 million dollars worldwide and counted in its credits with stars such as Keira Knightley, Orlando Bloom, Geoffrey Rush, Penelope Cruz or Javier Bardem.
The first film, ‘Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl’ (2003) was inspired by a Disneyland attraction and recovered the adventure cinema of pirates for the 21st century audience by Sparrow, a braggart and singular captain with the unusual ability to get out of any situation alive no matter how serious it was.
The next three installments, ‘Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest’ (2006), ‘Pirates of the Caribbean; at the end of the world ‘(2007) and’ Pirates of the Caribbean: on mysterious tides’ (2011) were a box office success.
But the last released film, ‘Pirates of the Caribbean: Salazar’s Revenge’ (2017), left some worrying signs as it was the lowest grossing in the series.
