In February we found out that producer Lionel Wigram was behind a new take on the tale of the Three Musketeerswould be coming to theaters using the same methods used to successfully reinvent Sherlock Holmes with Guy Ritchie, Robert Downey Jr., and Jude Law.
Now comes word that Wigram isn’t stopping there — the producer is now developing a re-imagining of the classic Robert Louis Stevenson novel Treasure Island for Warner Brothers. The story has seen a ton of film adaptations over the years, including in 1950 with Robert Newton and Bobby Driscoll, and in 1990 with Charlton Heston and Christian Bale.
Back in June of 2008, we discovered that a new movie was being developed based on the 1844 Alexandre Dumas classic, The Three Musketeers. At the time, not too much was known about the project, and as you can tell, it has been a while since any updates have been offered.
Now, with the title set up and cozy at Warner Brothers, it looks like things are about to set sail. The studio has Producer Lionel Wigram in place, and Peter Straughan has been hired to write the screenplay.
Wigram has done a lot of work with Warner Bros. over the years; he’s had a big hand in the success of the Harry Potter franchise, and was a producer on both Order of the Phoenix and Half-Blood Prince. He was also a writer and producer on Guy Ritchie’s new take on Sherlock Holmes, which is crucial because that’s exactly where they want to go with this new Three Musketeers adventure. The hopes and plans are to make it fun and exciting to appeal to younger audiences, and to hopefully score another big franchise out of it.
