Noyce onboard for ‘Blood’ remake

Director to develop pirate pic for Warner Bros.

Phillip Noyce has come onboard to develop a remake of the classic swashbuckler “Captain Blood” for Warner Bros. with an eye toward directing.

Warner is developing “Captain Blood” as a possible U.K./Australian co-production. Bill Gerber is producing.

Errol Flynn starred in the 1935 original, directed by Michael Curtiz, as a doctor wrongly sentenced to slavery in the Caribbean, where he and his comrades become avenging pirates. It was nominated for the best picture Oscar.

Noyce has also been attached to direct “Edwin A. Salt,” the Kurt Wimmer-scripted thriller that Columbia Pictures has been developing.
