While fans may be excited to see Robbie’s new addition to the franchise battle hordes of supernatural foes alongside franchise stalwart Depp, they will unfortunately be disappointed.
Despite being the staple of the franchise, Depp has not officially been signed up to the upcoming reboot of the franchise, meaning he could have been replaced.
Express.co.uk has contacted Disney for clarification on these upcoming films, and their leading actors.
This Robbie-led film will supposedly be the beginning of a new female-fronted Pirates of the Caribbean franchise.
And Robbie has good company, as the writer for this apparent new venture is Christina Hodson.
Cinema-goers may recognise Hodson’s name as the writer who penned the recently released Birds of Prey.
