The Kidd here...

So it's like SHERLOCK HOLMES but with pirates...?

A fair question to ask now that director Guy Ritchie is taking his visual style to adapt the classic Robert Louis Stevenson novel Treasure Island for Warner Bros. According to Deadline, Alex Harakis will be penning the script, with no real timetable on how quickly they're looking to get the project set firm. 

A stylized version of the book that can appeal to modern audiences sounds like a good fit for Ritchie, but just making it look cool can't be enough. There are many reasons Treasure Island has remained relevant since it was first published in 1883. Let's hope the adapted story captures them.
