It looks like the Pirates of the Caribbean reboot is moving forward and Disney already has its eyes on the star who will replace Captain Jack Sparrow. A new report claims that Jumanji: The Next Level actress Karen Gillan could get cast as Johnny Depp's replacement in the reboot.

The report comes from We Got This Covered, which cites anonymous sources claiming that the Avengers: Endgame star could get cast in the reboot. If Gillan accepts the role, she could play Redd, a female pirate who has been a fixture on the Pirates of the Caribbean ride.

Gillan would be a great choice to take on the role of Redd, or the Redhead, considering that she has already proven that she could take on any man in her films like Guardians of the Galaxy and Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle. However, it is important to point out that Disney has not yet confirmed the potential casting. With that in mind, it's best to take this with a grain of salt.


It was previously reported that Disney has decided to reboot the Pirates of the Caribbean movies and effectively remove Depp as Jack Sparrow. On the other hand, several fans were unhappy with the news since Depp's character has been synonymous to the films. Although we're disappointed that Captain Jack will no longer appear in the reboot, we're also looking forward to what the reboot will be about.

It's still unclear if Gillan will take on the lead role in the Pirates of the Caribbean reboot. In the meantime, you can catch her in action as Ruby Roundhouse in Jumanji: The Next Level, which hits theaters on December 13.
