CraveOnline reports that Andrew Davis, director of The Fugitive, recently revealed that he's working on a modern update of Treasure Island called Thieves' Fortune.
Davis' last movie was the 2006 drama The Guardian, starring Kevin Costner and Ashton Kutcher. Thieves' Fortune is said to be a family adventure. Davis stated: "I'm currently putting together a modern version of Treasure Island set in post-Katrina Louisiana called Thieves' Fortune. It's the treasure of Jean LaFitte and I think it could be a really interesting, fun movie that could be about something and still be very entertaining."
Davis added that a team of writers along with himself and Midnight Run writer George Gallo are working on the script. Cary Brokaw is producing the project. There is no studio attached yet.
