In Hollywood’s quest to make over a quarter of all characters you see on television and movies gay, Actress Margot Robbie wants part of the LGBT community…on screen.
Disney has been hellbent on remaking Johnny Deep’s classic character ‘Jack Sparrow’ of The Pirates of the Caribbean as a female for a number of years as the actor’s legal troubles have taken the spotlight. Before Margot Robbie has had an opportunity to screen test the character, it looks like another change is around the corner.
According to a report in Express, the newest star of the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise, is vying for her character to be LGBT. Margot, the new Jack Sparrow, would like to take her brand new pirate in an LGBT+ direction to spice up her character a little bit more. The Australian actress revealed her excitement on playing the new part promising ‘a lot of girl power’ as she and Christina Hodson, director of the feminist Birds of Prey flop take over the franchise.
It remains to be seen if the feminist LGBT remake of Pirates of the Caribbean will hold the same financial success as the Depp films.
