Captain Blood Remake
Wow, they're going WAY back in the vault for this one. Captain Blood, originally created in 1935 (and reviewed at Ben's Movie Reviews here!), is the latest piece to drop on the remake assembly line.
Phillip Noyce (Patriot Games, Clear and Present Danger) has signed on to develop the remake for Warner Brothers. The film follows a doctor who gets wrongfully put into slavery and then forms a band of pirates with his fellow slaves. The legendary Errol Flynn played the hero in the first one - I think it'd only be fitting if someone equally famous took over his role: Clint Eastwood, this is your chance to jump back into acting, buddy. An 80-year-old pirate? Money in the bank.
