Guy Ritchie to Direct "Treasure Island"

Posted: June 1st, 2012 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Guy Ritchie to Direct "Treasure Island"Submit Comment
Guy Ritchie (Sherlock Holmes, Snatch) has signed on to direct a big screen version of Robert Louis Stevenson's pirate tale "Treasure Island" for Warner Bros. Alex Harakis has been hired to write the script.

The project was originally set up by Lionel Wigram, who eventually partnered with Ritchie and went on to develop "Sherlock Holmes" for the studio. The plan now is to do the same thing with "Treasure Island."

When the project was first announced, the idea was to turn the 19th century tale into a modern-day story, while also playing up the relationship between Long John Silver and narrator Jim Hawkins.

Avatar was kind of like Treasure Island. Pirates go off to find some booty, and one of them nails an alien. Something like that.

Like I give a f*ck.

"The plan now is to do the same thing with "Treasure Island.""

Well, Sherlock Holmes 3 is dead. Someone get RDJ on the line.
