Disney Hellbent on Making Pirates of the Caribbean Movie Without Johnny Depp After Margot Robbie Movie Was Canceled, Working on Another Script

Published

Margot Robbie’s female-led “Pirates of the Caribbean” spinoff might not be dead after all. The Oscar nominee claimed last month that Disney did not want to make her female-led “Pirates” movie, which has been in development for several years, but franchise producer Jerry Bruckheimer told Collider that’s not entirely the case. Bruckheimer said that while another “Pirates” script is moving ahead over Robbie’s project, that doesn’t mean the female-centric spinoff is no longer a possibility.

“I think that that script will come forward at a certain point,” Bruckheimer said. “We developed two different stories for ‘Pirates’ and the other one’s going forward first, so that’s what we’re working on, to try to get that one made.”

Variety reported in summer 2020 that Disney was in early development on Robbie’s “Pirates” movie as well as a second reboot written by franchise veteran Ted Elliott and “Chernobyl” creator Craig Mazin. Bruckheimer, who produced all five “Pirates” movies starring Johnny Depp, was always attached to both projects. It was confirmed in June 2020 that Robbie would be the star of a new “Pirates of Caribbean” movie at Disney written by her “Birds of Prey” screenwriter Christina Hodson.

Bruckheimer told The Sunday Times in May that both projects were still in development at the time, adding, “Yes. We’re talking to Margot Robbie. We are developing two ‘Pirates’ scripts — one with her, one without. [Will Johnny Depp be back?] Not at this point. The future is yet to be decided.”

Robbie was Vanity Fair’s cover star last month and told the publication, “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.”

According to Bruckheimer, Robbie’s “Pirates” movie isn’t dead but also isn’t being prioritized at the moment. The previous “Pirates” movies, all starring Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow, grossed $1.5 billion domestically and $3.07 billion internationally. The domestic total for 2017’s “Dead Men Tell No Tales” hit $172 million, while foreign markets delivered $622 million. All five “Pirates” films have grossed more than $650 million worldwide, with “Dead Man’s Chest” and “On Stranger Tides” both topping the $1 billion mark.

Jenna Ortega’s Biggest Regret? Wednesday Scene Fans Can’t Stop Talking About

Despite the ultimate fan love she received for the viral Wednesday dance, the actress seems to think she could have done better.

Quickly becoming one of Netflix‘s biggest hits ever, Wednesday is marching through Twitter threads, TikTok videos, and Instagram reels and garnering views and likes months after the premiere. All of this thanks to the show’s most popular scene — the Wednesday dance to The Cramps’ Goo Goo Muck at the school disco at Nevermore.

However, speaking with Entertainment Tonightat the Golden Globes ceremony, the show’s main star Jenna Ortega revealed that she isn’t fully satisfied with the final result.

“There was so much I could have done and should have done. So, the fact that anyone has shown any appreciation or even tried it themselves is unfathomable to me,” the actress said, commenting on the Wednesday dance’s viral popularity.

Ortega choreographed the dance herself, somehow managing to combine improvisation and old goth moves. Besides, she also revealed that she had to film the scene while having coronavirus — something that the actress and the production were heavily criticized for.

Still, despite Ortega’s apparent regrets, the dance scene is probably the first thing that comes to mind when you think of Netflix’s Wednesday. This all started with a TikTok edit that popularized the dance, but with a high-pitched remix of Lady Gaga‘s Bloody Mary instead of the original soundtrack.

Now, Netflix has greenlit Wednesday for a second season — and even used Bloody Mary to promote the upcoming sequel, apparently nodding to the viral song choice. The premiere date for Wednesday season 2 is yet to be announced.
