Masturbating rap-rock pirate really speaks to the kids.

The success of Guy Ritchie‘s Sherlock Holmes has led Ecosse Films to snatch the rights to another classic. The U.K.-based production company is planning to bring Treasure Island back to the screen with a cooler Long John Silver. From Variety:

Silver’s character will be hipper, in the style of Robert Downey Jr‘s interpretation of Sherlock Holmes.

Though details are slim, this means we will most likely see Colin Farrell-type kickboxing Somalian pirates and cannonball surfing on theater screens in the next few years. Meanwhile, your confused mom will accidentally rent the Asylum version, Treasures Island. Y’know, the version that will inexplicably have ninjas and Debra Gibson. (Variety)
