Noyce To Remake Captain Blood

Phillip Noyce (“Catch a Fire,” “Clear and Present Danger”) will develop a remake of the 1935 Errol Flynn pirate feature “Captain Blood” for Warner Bros. Pictures reports Variety.

Flynn starred as a doctor wrongly sentenced to slavery in the Caribbean, where he and his comrades become avenging pirates.

The potential U.K./Australian co-production could be helmed by Noyce who’s already linked to two other thrillers – “25th Amendment” and most likely Sony’s “Edwin A. Salt”.
