Director Andrew Davis, who hasn't made a film since the 2006 drama The Guardian, revealed that he is planning a modern-day remake of the 1990 film Treasure Island, entitled Thieves Fortune. Here's what he had to say in a recent interview.
"I'm currently putting together a modern version of Treasure Island set in post Katrina Louisiana called Thieves Fortune. It's the treasure of Jean LaFitte and I think it could be a really interesting, fun movie that could be about something and still be very entertaining."
The director is currently working on the screenplay with George Gallo and a number of other unidentified writers. The project doesn't have a studio home as of yet, but the director said they will start pitching it once the script is complete and a cast is attached.
"I've turned down a lot of violent action movies which I don't want to do. I don't want to make a film where violence is the entertainment. I had a great time with Holes. I'm interested in doing family movies or four quadrant movies that are based upon quality literature or books."
Stay tuned for more details regarding the Treasure Island remake Thieves Fortune.
