Michael Bay to prequel “Treasure Island”

Wait, seriously? Michael Bay doing a pirate miniseries? Will we finally get to see Blackbeard headbutt a cannonball while farting fire? I’m betting YES.

Will Michael Bay’s “Treasure Island” Prequel Prove to Be Pirate Heaven or a Rum Do?

Wait, nevermind – it’s a Treasure Island thing. I guess any cannonball headbutting will be done by Long John, who will probably sport a crutch that can do singleshot, full auto, or burst.

Clearly loads of pirate TV “in the works” based on this article – some of it we’ve heard before, some new. Now let’s see what actually finds a way to the tiny screen.

    So, will The Queen Anne’s Revenge turn out to be a Decepticon?

    Dear Bilgemunky,
    Have you seen the Eddie Izzard portrayal of Long John Silver in Syfy’s remastering of Treasure Island? I recommend it.
