The Pirates of the Caribbean franchise is one of the most profitable for the mouse house. It is therefore logical that the studio wants to push it out as far as possible.
To keep the legacy of the fraudulent Buccaneer adventures active, they seem to be looking for a fairly well-known face to lead this next chapter: Karen Gillan.
The news of Gillan’s preliminary addition comes after last year’s announcement.
There were plans to restart the property, with Craig Mazin (Chernobyl) and Ted Elliot in charge of the script. Elliot is already a veteran telling stories about Jack Sparrow and his company, and his return will serve to keep the narrative on familiar ground.
In fact, it has long been speculated that Johnny Depp would be back in his iconic role, that he would be the only element preserved from its predecessors, as everything else would be brand new.
Karen Gillan is not the first time in the blockbuster world and he already has four films from the Marvel Cinematic Universe and two from Jumanji in his career.
Only with her appearances in these projects is the 32-year-old Scottish woman positioned as the perfect choice to take over the main credit for the production, since Disney apparently described the character (who remains nameless at the moment) as “clever”, clever and impulsive.
It came about because there is a lot of emphasis on mentioning the intentions of securing Gillan for this next installment.
It is important to emphasize that contrary to your opinion, this will not be the first production of the pirates for which a woman is responsible, since the fifth film, Dead Man Tell No Tales, introduces the audience to the audience Carina Smyth’s character, that of Kaya Scodelario was brought to life.
With her arrival in the Pirates of the Caribbean universe, Karen Gillan will add a new epic adventure to her acting career.
When the decision is final, we have to wait and see what it can bring into the universe based on the mechanical play.
