Karen Gillan Being Eyed To Lead Pirates Of The Caribbean Reboot – We Got This Covered

The future of thePirates of the Caribbeanfranchise has been up in the air for quite a while now. Several months ago, the House of Mouse dropped the series lead, Johnny Depp, following but not officially caused by Amber Heards allegations of sexual abuse. Depp has since blamed his ex-wifes op-ed in The Washington Postfor Disneys decision, and the ensuing legal mess has been far from kind.

But as that drama has unfolded in the courts, Disney has remained confident that the franchise can continue without Depp. The studios eyes have since been set on a female-led reboot, penned byDeadpooland Zombielandwriters Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick (though both eventually bailed on the project). And aside from those tiny details, we havent heard much else. Until now.

According to sources close to We Got This Covered the same ones who told us the leads of Ghostbusters 3 would be young teens and that an Aladdin sequel was in development, both of which have since been confirmed Disney is eyeing Jumanji and Guardians of the Galaxy star Karen Gillan to headline the reboot. Appropriately, the character shed be playing is a pirate named Red and shed pioneer whatever uncharted territories the franchise decides to explore.

Now, we know that a lot of fans are still very upset about the burial at sea of Captain Jack Sparrow, but this possibility shouldnt be accompanied by frowns. Over the last decade, Gillan has proven herself as a more than capable action star, with supporting roles in the aforementioned films, as well as Doctor Who. So, as far as Im concerned, if Disney decides to move forward with this Pirates of the Caribbean reboot, the 31-year-old actress would be a very solid choice.

In the meantime, you can evaluate this possibility yourself when Gillan hits the big screen on December 13th with Jumanji: The Next Level.
