Rob Cohen Hijacks A “Sea Artist”?

Rob Cohen is apparently attached to direct “The Sea Artist”, a film about modern day pirates reports Production Weekly via Slashfilm.

Details of the story are unknown but the subject is timely considering the heightened awareness of modern day piracy in recent months, the recent Sirius Star oil tanker hostage incident, and a general lack of films dealing with the subject matter (last film I can recall with modern day pirates was “6 Days, 7 Nights”).

Tony Puryear, a comic book artist and music video director, penned both this script and an unproduced screenplay based on the “Buck Rogers” property. Both his scripts garnered good reviews.
