Margot Robbie-led Pirates of the Caribbean film is still in development

Pirates of the Caribbean is far from dead. At least, that's what Jerry Bruckheimer is claiming.

According to Bruckheimer, they are still "talking to Margot Robbie" and that they are working on "two Pirates scripts - one with her, one without."

Judging by what Bruckheimer said, the long-gestating rumor and sequel are both still in development.

Unfortunately, his words don't inspire confidence at all.

"Talking to" is ways away from already securing Margot Robbie, which isn't so easy to do these days.

The good news is that Depp's ongoing legal battle with Heard is set to conclude on May 27 or soon after.

Disney's decision on the future of the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise might depend on how the highly-publicized defamation trial will turn out.
