Disney Officially Scrapped Margot Robbie’s "Pirates Of The Caribbean" Movie?

It's been five years since the previous "Pirates of the Caribbean" film. Disney announced in 2020 it was planning a "Pirates of the Caribbean" spinoff featuring Robbie. After all, Margot Robbie isn't living the life of a pirate. "Pirates Of The Caribbean" Spinoff Canceled, in which she was slated to feature, has been shelved, according to the Oscar nominee. Robbie stated that work on the projected "Pirates" film had halted because Disney did not want to continue with it.

“We had an idea and we were developing it for a while, ages ago, to have more of a female-led – not female-led, but just a different kind of story – which we thought would’ve been cool, but I guess they don’t want to do it,” Robbie said, referring to Disney.
Robbie and Hodson were first attached to the project in June 2020, one of two planned “Pirates” films, the Hollywood Reporter said at the time. The film series’ producer Jerry Bruckheimer confirmed Robbie’s involvement as recently as May of this year.

The original "Pirates" film series, starring Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow, was partially based on the Disney theme park attraction of the same name. Keira Knightley, Orlando Bloom, and Geoffrey Rush played supporting parts in all five. According to CNBC, the films grossed more than $4.52 billion globally, making it one of the most lucrative film franchises of all time.
"Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl," released in 2003, was the first installment of the franchise. The success of the movie led to many more installments. Including "Dead Man's Chest" (2006), "At World's End" (2007), and "On Stranger Tides" (2011).

A reboot of the series (separate from the canceled Robbie-starring spinoff) has been in development since 2019. Bruckheimer told the Times this year that Depp would likely not star in future “Pirates” films. Meanwhile, Robbie is starring in another studio tentpole, Greta Gerwig's widely anticipated "Barbie" adaption next year. She's also expected to appear in an "Ocean's Eleven" prequel alongside Ryan Gosling.
Robbie worked in popular DC movies like "Birds of Prey" and "The Suicide Squad". Her upcoming projects include "Babylon," which stars Brad Pitt in the lead, "Barbie," "Asteroid City," "Ruin" and "Gotham City Sirens." She will play the title role in "Barbie."
