The “Pirates of the Caribbean” are getting ready to set sail in a whole new direction, with Australian actress Margot Robbie starring in a new version of one of Disney’s biggest film franchises.

A source with knowledge of the project says Robbie, the star of “Suicide Squad” is to head a female-driven “Pirates” movie which is in the early stages of development.

The Hollywood Reporter said the movie was a separate project from a new “Pirates of the Caribbean” movie that was announced as in development last year,

Based on a ride at the Disney’s theme parks, the five “Pirates of the Caribbean” movies, starring Johnny Depp as Jack Sparrow, have taken some $4.5 billion at the global box office since 2003.
