Treasure Island Gets ‘Holmes’-Style Update

Ecosse Films is moving forward with a contemporary adaptation of Robert Louis Stevenson’s “Treasure Island” reports Variety.

Much like the recent “Sherlock Holmes”, the project will update the 19th century tale with a ‘hipper’ contemporary sensibility and a stronger focus on the relationship between Long John Silver and Jim Hawkins

Douglas Rae and Robert Bernstein will produce while Niall Johnson (“Callas”) is penning the script.
