Davis hasn’t directed a feature film since the 2006 action drama The Guardian, starring Kevin Costner and Ashton Kutcher, but now he’s developing a new family adventure.
“I’m currently putting together a modern version of Treasure Island set in post-Katrina Louisiana called Thieves’ Fortune,” Davis said. “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.”
The Holes director added that a team of writers, including Davis himself and Midnight Run writer George Gallo, are working on the script. Cary Brokaw is producing. There is no studio attached yet.
