Blackbeard to Set Sail

Haven’t you heard? Pirate flicks are big! At least Dreamworks thinks so. Written by David Franzoni (Amistad, Gladiator) will pen a new biopic on infamous pirate, ‘Blackbeard.’

The project was born when producer Barry Josephson enlisted Pat Croce, a motivational speaker and former 76ers owner, to write a treatment on the pirate, whose real name was Edward Teach.

Perhaps it is finally time for a more realistic pirate movie that doesn’t star Johnny Depp, or use the word “Kraken” in it sixtenn million times. I think Edward ‘Blackbeard’ Teach would be an exciting story that would translate extremely well to the big screen.
