‘Crossbones’ Pirate Pilot

‘Hannibal’ Producer David Slade to Direct ‘Crossbones’ Pirate Pilot for NBC.

“He definitely won’t have much vacation time while he waits to start work on season 2 of Hannibal; Deadline reports that Slade has now signed on to direct the pilot episode of NBC’s new pirate show Crossbones, which stars John Malkovich in the lead as infamous pirate Edward Teach (AKA Blackbeard). ..Crossbones is based on Colin Woodard’s non-fiction book “The Republic of Pirates,” and is set on the Bahamian island of New Providence in 1715, during the ‘Golden Age’ of piracy. The show is being produced by husband-and-wife team Walter Parkes and Laurie MacDonald (Men in Black 3), and Cross will also act as executive producer alongside his writing duties.”

Hannibal level direction, John Malkovich, history, AND Blackbeard!  I am looking forward to this.
