Pirates Are Back With Blackbeard!

David Franzoni of "Gladiator" and "Amistad" fame,  will be penning the script to the upcoming biopic on the famous pirate, Blackbeard, also known as Edward Teach.

Blackbeard was notorious for forcing his crew onto merchant ships and plundering them.  While he has a dangerous reputation, there is no actual proof that he ever killed anyone. 

The film will be produced by Barry Josephson and Pat Croce. Josephson worked on "Enchanted" and Croce wrote "Pirate Soul," a book that chronicled the golden era of piracy, which spanned 1690-1730. 

DreamWorks will be distributing the film.
