According to reports, the Pirates of the Caribbean movie starring Margot Robbie has sunk without a trace.

Robbie revealed to Vanity Fair in its issue for December 2022/January 2023 that the project is not in the works, which is more than two years after it was reported by PEOPLE that the 32-year-old actress was going to star in a spinoff installment of Disney’s popular adventure franchise. Robbie is currently working on a new film.

In reference to the Babylon spinoff, the actress said, “We had a concept and we were developing it for a long, years ago, to have more of a female-led—not completely female-led, but just a different sort of tale,” but “I think they don’t want to do it.”

The Walt Disney Company did not immediately reply to PEOPLE’s request for a comment from a representative of the company.

The Hollywood Reporter was the publication that broke the story that Margot Robbie will be starring in a new Pirates of the Caribbean movie back in June of 2020. Reuniting with Christina Hodson, the screenwriter for Birds of Prey and the person who was supposed to write the Pirates spinoff, was one of the potential outcomes of the project.

Beginning with “Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl” in 2003, Disney has amassed more than $4.5 billion in revenue from the series.

After the phenomenal success of the first film, a number of follow-up installments were produced, including Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest (2006), Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End (2007), Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides (2011), and Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales (2017).

Johnny Depp was the star of all of the Pirates of the Caribbean films, playing the rakish Captain Jack Sparrow. Orlando Bloom, Keira Knightley, Geoffrey Rush, Javier Bardem, and Penélope Cruz all appeared in the movie as supporting cast members.

Fans of Johnny Depp, who is now 59 years old, would have to wait a little bit longer — perhaps forever — to see him wear the eccentric Captain Jack’s cap once again.

In June, a representative for Johnny Depp informed the publication PEOPLE that a story stating the actor would return to the Pirates of the Caribbean series for a payoff of more than $300 million is “fake.”

Jerry Bruckheimer, the producer of the series, stated in an interview that was published the previous month in the United Kingdom newspaper The Times (while Johnny Depp was in court for his defamation trial against his ex-wife Amber Heard), that his team was working on “two Pirates scripts — one with [Robbie], and one without.”

Bruckheimer, who is 79 years old, responded to the possibility that Depp might be engaged by saying, “Not at this moment,” but he added that “the future is still to be determined.”
