Pirates of the Caribbean 6 will reunite former Birds of Prey , Margot Robbie and Christina Hodson in an all-female soft-reboot the Disney adventure movie.
The next decade is looking to be awesome for female representation but possible terrible for the box office as Hollywood sets to do many all-female soft-reboots of already beloved classics, this included Pirates of the Caribbean 6.
I hate to be the bearer of bad news but things are not looking good for Johnny Depp fans. It doesn’t look like Depp will be returning as the infamous Captain Jack Sparrow. Nope. Our sources tell us there is a new zany pirate sailing the seven seas, and this time it’s a woman.
Margot Robbie is now confirmed to be starring in Pirates of the Caribbean 6, and she might be taking Depp’s role as the lead.
Screenwriter for Birds of Prey, Christina Hodson, will also be behind Pirates 6. She was allegedly very impressed with Margot Robbie’s performance as Harley Quinn and specifically requested Margot Robbie for the lead role in the upcoming movie. She might even replace Johnny Depp as the rum-guzzling rogue pirate, Jack Sparrow.
There’s no doubt that Margo Robbie has the talent to play such an iconic role, but many people believe it would be very damaging for the franchise if they do not bring back Jack.
Very little is known about the untitled Pirates of the Caribbean project at this time except that, like Birds of Prey, Pirates 6 is all about “girl power”, or so Robbie says.
Hodson has also revealed that the new movie is a soft-reboot so there is little to no chance of seeing a Johnny Depp cameo. She also revealed that the film will be female-fronted and have a heavy focus on feminism.
Other films that are getting the feminist treatment in the coming years is James Bond and Avengers.
Lashana Lynch will replace Daniel Craig as the new 007 in the upcoming James Bond movie, No Time To Die.
Disney/Marvel are also working on an all-female Avengers movie called The A-Squad which will be lead by Brie Larson as Captain Marvel.
2021 will certainly be an amazing year for female representation in blockbuster movies, but will it also be good for the box office? Only time twill tell.
