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?
