I miss the old Guy Ritchie. The one that made our noses bleed with double-crossing ensemble films like Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, Snatch, and RocknRolla. The end of RocknRolla promised us a sequel, but it looks like we’l be waiting a minute as he burns though Treasure Island and probably the odd Sherlock Holmes sequel in the interim.

Warner Bros. likes the magic he spun with the Sir Arthur Conan Doyle series, so now they’ve signed him up to do more of the same (presumably) with Robert Louis Stevenson’s tropical saga. Maybe after that he’ll get back to those uniquely told caper films?

Eh. Not so fast.

His name has also been bandied about in conjunction with a Cannonball Run remake, which sounds slightly better than Treasure Island, but still not as good as anything he did before that, not counting Swept Away, which shouldn’t be counted towards anything.

Though Greengrass discloses that he was never actually on the project. He hadn't signed anything, nor did he intend to.

They're working with the studio now to decide on a screenwriter but I don't know why. A sexy version of Treasure Island has already been done. In fact I was watching it late last night on Cinemax with the volume off as to not wake Mother. (Deadline)
