[ September 21st 2001 ]

Script writers Scribes Christian Gudegast and Paul Scheuring look set to enjoy a seven-figure pay-check and secure a retainer for a sequel after selling their epic war drama "Black Flag" to Warner Brothers with Lara Croft: Tomb Raider director Simon West attached to direct, Variety reports today.

Set in the Indian Ocean in the 17th century, the epic story centers on a former British Royal Navy officer who becomes unjustly marooned for participating in a justifiable mutiny with a rival officer and friend who then turns against him. Left for dead, the marooned officer becomes a pirate.

"Ever since I was a child I have been obsessed with classic high seas adventure films. For some time now, I have been looking for a story that reinvents the genre." Simon West told Variety. "I knew this was the one. It wasn't the swashbuckling, men-in-tights version of yesteryear, but a realistic, less idealised version."
