Treasure Island for Generation Y

Variety reports that British production company Ecosse Films will bring a new version of Robert Louis Stevenson’s novel, Treasure Island, to the big screen.  Ecosse plans for this new incarnation to be a hipper take on the classic tale, akin to last year’s Sherlock Holmes.  The new film will focus on the relationship between the iconic three-limbed pirate Long John Silver and Jim Hawkins.

A doubloon for your thoughts.  What will a hipper version of Treasure Island look like?  Jokes about scurvy?  Brazen corset shots?  Moreover, who should be cast as Long John Silver and Jim Hawkins?
