Treasure Island Header

Guy Ritche has signed on to adapt yet another classic piece of literature. According to Deadline, the filmmaker will be working with Sherlock Holmes producer Lionel Wigram, who has been looking to add a contemporary feel to the famed children’s novel Treasure Island. So it seems to make sense that Ritchie and Wigram reunite for something like this.

Not much is known about the actual film itself. Alex Harakis was the last screenwriter attached to the script. Ritchie himself has other things on his plate as well. He subbed in for Steven Soderbergh when he left The Man From U.N.C.L.E., so it could be a while before we see this get into production.

For those who may not be familiar with the story of Treasure Island, the book by Robert Louis Stevenson follows the exploilts of a cabin boy named Jim Hawkins. During their perilous journey across the Spanish main, a sailor named Long John Silver causes a mutiny and takes over the ship. From there they search for the legendary buried treasure.

So if Ritchie can add a rich contemporary look to his two Sherlock Holmes films, he should have no problem doing the same thing here by helming an adaptation of Treasure Island.
