"Sherlock Holmes" helmer Guy Ritchie is attached to direct a new take on Robert Louis Stevenson’s "Treasure Island" for Warner Bros. Pictures reports Deadline.

Alex Harakis has come onboard to pen the script which will stick to period but give it a stylized contemporary action blockbuster sheen, much like Ritchie and Robert Downey Jr. did with Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's literary detective.

Ritchie, Lionel Wigram and Kevin McCormick will produce. Paul Greengrass was previously linked with the project.
