Rumors have been stirring for a couple of years of another Pirates of the Caribbean film being in the works. According to a Disinsider source Daniel Richtman, the film is underway and will be a reboot with an entirely new cast. This new franchise will feature a female lead based on Redd, a character from the Disneyworld ride. The animatronics for Redd was upgraded in 2018 and has become a character actor in the park. The leading contender for the lead role is Karen Gillan from Jumanji and Avengers Endgame (Nebula). Writers for the new franchise will be Chernobyl’s Craig Mazin and Ted Elliot of the previous films. No news on Jack Sparrow’s return but it is doubtful as current reports explain the new franchise will go in a different direction than the past films.
