A remake of Captain Blood…in space

Any hardcore fans of swashbucklers will remember Captain Blood starring Errol Flynn in his heyday and good old Basil Rathbone. In the film Flynn plays British doctor, Peter Blood, who  becomes a pirate in the Caribbean.

Warner Bros. has bought in  Michael and Peter Spierig  pen a remake of Captain Blood with one small change…it will be set in space. Now one half of me would love to see a proper classic remake in the style of say the Mask of Zorro but another part of me  wants to see this crazy idea unfold. Let’s face it this will either be awesome or one expensive train wreck of a film.
