‘Pirates Of The Caribbean’: Jerry Bruckheimer Is Confident Margot Robbie’s Spinoff Will Happen

So you’re saying there’s a chance? There’s been a lot of turmoil surrounding the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise, most of it caused by personal drama in Johnny Depp’s life. Disney had moved on from the Jack Sparrow actor with a film that was reported to star Margot Robbie. However, two scripts were developed; one that featured her, and another that focuses on a younger cast. While Robbie’s opinion is that her film is dead, uber-producer Jerry Bruckheimer has been saying otherwise and continues to.

Speaking with THR about Top Gun: Maverick, Bruckheimer was asked about the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise and expressed confidence that both films will get made…

“I think we’re getting very close on that one, too. We have a very good script. We developed two of them — the one with Margot Robbie and one with a younger cast. The Margot Robbie one needs a little more work. The younger cast one is close. Hopefully, we’ll get both of them.”

Asked about Robbie’s claim that her film is dead, Bruckheimer replied…

“It’s alive for me. It’s alive for Disney. I’m sure she was disappointed it didn’t go first — or maybe not because she’s very busy, so it might be a blessing to push this a bit. We believe we’ll get it made. It’s a very strong story.”

What you’re not hearing? Any talk about bringing Depp back. That has to sting a little bit.
