Treasure Island Reboot

U.K.-based Ecosse Films is developing a feature adaptation of Robert Louis Stevenson’s swashbuckling novel, “Treasure Island.”

Ecosse co-toppers Douglas Rae and Robert Bernstein want to update the 19th century tale of pirates and buried gold for contemporary auds, playing up the relationship between Long John Silver and narrator Jim Hawkins.

Silver’s character will be hipper, in the style of Robert Downey Jr’s interpretation of Sherlock Holmes and the Pirates Of The Caribbean franchise.
