Margot Robbie to Star in New “Pirates of the Caribbean” Movie for Disney

Margot Robbie is set to take the high seas for Disney.

The star is setting sail with help from her “Birds of Prey” writer Christina Hodson for a new Disney movie based on “Pirates of the Caribbean”.

Robbie will star, Hodson is expected to pen the script.

While plot details are under wrap, The Hollywood Reporter says it is not intended to be a spinoff of the long-running franchise that had pirate Jack Sparrow at its center, but rather a wholly original story with new characters under the Pirates moniker, itself inspired by the long-running attraction at Disneyland.

The new project is said to be separate from the already announced reboot of the popular franchise that has Pirates scribe Ted Elliott and Chernobyl creator Craig Mazin developing the story.

Longtime Pirates producer Jerry Bruckheimer is attached to produce both the Elliott/Mazin project and this new Robbie/Hodson project.
