The Fugitive Director Planning Thieves’ Fortune

By ON

The 20th Anniversary Blu-ray for The Fugitive hits stores on Tuesday and CraveOnline got a chance to chat with the film’s director, Andrew Davis, about what he has been working on lately.

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.
