The New Pirates of the Caribbean Movie is Still Alive
The Pirates of the Caribbean franchise has been making a lot of noise in recent months. This noise was not only because Johnny Depp refused to return to his Jack Sparrow character. It was also due to the announcement that a woman would replace him in the sixth part of this movie. However, recent declarations put in doubt if Warner Bros. will make the new Pirates of the Caribbean movie or not.
First, we have the announcement of actress Margot Robbie, who would star in this sequel. She said in an interview that the production of this movie was dead, and we would not have a sixth part. Now the producer of this saga Jerry Bruckheimer, said that all is not lost.
In his statements, he gave details that could indicate that we would not only have the new Pirates of the Caribbean movie production but two. In addition, he indicated the possibility of Depp returning to his role as Captain Jack Sparrow. These two announcements leave the movie in doubt and confuse fans who need to know what to expect.

At first, there were many rumors about the new Pirates of the Caribbean movie. This would be an alternative version since the character of Jack Sparrow is out of the question for the moment, as Depp does not want anything to do with Disney. In this production, we would see the first female pirate protagonist who would be played by Margot Robbie, the actress who plays the role of the Duchess in The Wolf of Wall Street.
The problem is that in an interview with Vanity Fair, Robbie pointed out that this new sequel was dead. After that statement from the actress, Jerry Bruckheimer told Collider there was still nothing definite for this movie.

The producer commented, “I think that that script will come forward at a certain point.” He added, “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.”
Bruckheimer noted that two projects of this saga were being written simultaneously. One would feature Robbie, and one would not. However, Warner Bros. postponed the production in which the actress would participate indefinitely, going to the back burner. This is while the development of the other filming continues.
About the other production, producers commented that Ted Elliott and Craig Mazin would write the script. The former was responsible for creating the plot for the first four films. The second was the script creator for the Netflix miniseries Chernobyl.
As for the new Pirates of the Caribbean movie, there is a duality of comments. Its possible protagonist says it is dead, while its producer declares that the film can still happen. We are still determining what decision Warner will make regarding this production.

One question that fans are asking is if the character of Jack Sparrow will return to the saga. This after Johnny Depp was fired by Disney for allegedly mistreating his current ex-wife, Amber Heard. After the tortuous trial that these two actors had and Depp’s victory in court, the actor declared that he would not work with Disney again, not even for 300 million dollars.
Depp may return to the new Pirates of the Caribbean movie. It is well known that he is working as a director in a film by Al Pacino. It is the first time that Depp has been in charge of this kind of production.
According to Bruckheimer’s statements, the idea has yet to be confirmed or denied. Certainly, he will not be in the next sequels. However, we don’t rule out that he will return.

He also confirmed Robbie’s participation in the next sequel and commented on Depp, saying the following. “Yes. We are talking to Margot Robbie. We are developing two ‘Pirates’ scripts, one with her and one without her,” he explained. ” Not at this point. The future is yet to be decided.”
For now, both Pirates of the Caribbean movie scripts are on the table. At the moment, it is not known which one will be released first. However, if it is known that Robbie will be in one of them, we will have to wait to see what it is about and what kind of role she will play.
