Michael Crichton will keep coming back …like Tupac!


This isn’t so much one of my commentaries as news from a movie nerd.  Plus, it sounds like something that will be cool …bad taste of prior blog needed to be scraped out of my mouth.  Hey!  Maybe Stevie will leave Harvey alone and work on this instead!  Wishful thinking.

Dreamworks has purchased the rights to the late Michael Crichton’s final manuscript entitled Pirate Latitudes, a film set in 1665 that centers around an plan to infiltrate Port Royal, Jamaica, one of the world’s richest cities, and raid a Spanish galleon filled with riches.

“Michael Crichton was one of our greatest storytellers, who expanded all of our imaginations with his books, films and television,” said Steven Spielberg who plans to produce and possibly direct the project.

Crichton completed the novel right before his passing last November – and former collaborator David Koepp will adapt it for the big screen.

Spielberg, Crichton and Koepp have teamed up on several acclaimed productions, including Jurassic Park and The Lost World.
