Margot Robbie’s spin-off film Pirates of the Caribbean has been canceled. Speaking to ‘Vanity Fair’, Robbie said: “We had an idea and we developed it ages ago to have more of a woman led – not entirely woman led but just a different kind of story – that we thought , would have been really cool, but I think she [Disney] don’t want to do it.”

Rumors of a Robbie-led Pirates film first surfaced in late 2020 when Birds of Prey writer Christina Hodson was set to pen the script. Earlier this year (2022), producer Jerry Bruckheimer said two separate Pirates projects were in development (via The Sunday Times) before confirming in August that Pirates of the Caribbean 6 would happen. However, he never mentioned Robbie as part of the future of the franchise.

Luckily Robbie has a lot to do. In addition to starring in the new film Babylon, out December 23, she will take on the title role in Barbie opposite Ryan Gosling’s Ken and will also star in the films Asteroid City and an untitled Ocean’s Eleven feature film.

In Babylon, Robbie takes on the role of Nellie LaRoy, who embarks on a unique journey through an era of “unbridled decadence and depravity” in early Hollywood. She stars alongside the likes of Brad Pitt, Tobey Maguire, Max Minghella, Samara Weaving, Diego Calva, Jovan Adepo, Li Jun Li, Lukas Haas and Jean Smart.

In other news, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever broke a new record for November with its box office sales, and the title for Stranger Things Season 5 Episode 1 may indicate that Eddie is still alive. Margot Robbie’s Pirates of the Caribbean film canceled at Disney
