Blackbeard Biopic to be directed by Paul Greengrass

In May this year, news broke that Dreamworks was to make a film based on the pirate Blackbeard. One of the writers of Gladiator David Franzoni was working on a script. Now the rumour is that director has been ear marked, and it is Paul Greengrass (Bourne Ultimatum, Kavanagh QC!)
Mania.com say that this pirate film is aiming for more of an R rated approach. David Franzoni is still working on the script, and Greengrass is top of a shortlist of people they want to direct. The film will tell the story of Edward Teach, one time member of the Royal Navy. After fighting against the Spanish, many sailors find themselves disowned. Teach and a group of fellow sailers, take his ship and begin a life of piracy.
