Disney may restart the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise with its central female character, the red-haired Redd pirate. She will replace the hero of Johnny Depp – Captain Jack Sparrow. This is reported by HNE with reference to several sources in the industry.
It is noted that the script of the first film is not yet completed, so everything can change. However, according to the interlocutors of the publication, Disney will soon have several high-budget films with women in the lead roles: “Captain Marvel”, “Black Widow” and “Maleficent 2”, so the studio may well continue this line.
Who will play Redd is not yet clear. The publication suggests that this role could be performed by Daisy Ridley, a famous “Star Wars” viewer, who was trained in fencing.
The fact whether the Orlando Bloom franchise, Keira Knightley, Brenton Tweites and Kaya Scodelario will be returned is also unknown.
“Pirates of the Caribbean” with Depp in the lead role is one of the most successful film series not only for Disney, but for the cinema as well. Five paintings in total have collected more than 4.5 billion dollars. Tapes came out from 2003 to 2017.
