Filmmaker Andrew Davis is planning another family adventure feature following 2003's "Holes" and 2006's "The Guardian". He tells Crave Online:

"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."

Davis, who is currently working on the script with George Gallo ("Midnight Run"), admits he's fed up with the action movie genre. It's a surprise considering it's the very genre on which he made his name with such films as "The Fugitive" and "Under Siege".

"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."
