Who would have thought that the pirate craze would still be going strong eight years after Johnny Depp first guy-linered his way into the Pirates Of The Caribbean: Curse Of The Black Pearl. Once relegated to air-puffed white cheddar snacks and Capital One ads, pirates are now big business and Scott Free Productions is getting in on the craze.

Ridley and Tony’s company are developing the 10 -13 episode series, “Pyrates,” for FOX to air next summer. The story is a grittier take than Jack Sparrow getting hit in the groin with a coconut, focusing on the greatest robbery in pirate history — the capturing of the Spanish silver fleet in 1628. The more realistic, less fantastical take probably means no hot mermaids which is a shame. They’ll have to make it up to us with hot Spanish chicks. This is FOX we’re talking about after all.

Scott Free, the production company founded by Ridley and Tony Scott, are set to adapt the soon-to-be-published novel, Pigeon English. Written by debut author Stephen Kelman, Pigeon English follows Harri, a twelve-year old Ghanian boy who moves into a British housing project. When another boy is found murdered, Harri decides to investigate the murder himself. These actions put his family into danger.

Adam Smith, a director of the UK‘s “Skins,” will helm from a script by Jack Thorne.

While it’s great that a debut writer is enjoying such early success, the recent trend of adapting material before it has been published is frustrating. My epic self-published fantasy series, That Time Ned Beatty Went To Narnia Then Outer Space, has been languishing on Amazon for what feels like forever. Me got a kat to feed, dammit! (Deadline)
