During a recent interview with Vanity Fair, Robbie expressed her thoughts on her new projects which also included 'Pirates of the Carribean.' On top of the five films she’s producing, she’s readying 'Barbie' for next summer. Robbie’s also in preproduction on an 'Ocean’s Eleven' prequel that she’ll star in and produce. Another franchise spin-off she’d been attached to, a 'Pirates of the Caribbean' film, has been shelved, she tells the outlet. “We had an idea and we were developing it for a while, ages ago, to have more of a female-led not totally female-led, but just a different kind of story which we thought would’ve been really cool, but I guess they don’t want to do it,” Robbie says of Disney.

A fan said, "She kills it as Harley Quinn but she ain’t on the same level as Captain Jack Sparrow," while another added, "Thank God, it wasn't even hers to begin with. The franchise truthfully belongs to one of the greatest character actors to ever walk this earth. Create something new, stop recycling content, and characters."
