Bourne Director up for Blackbeard movie

I actually had to look this guy up but Paul Greengrass was the director of the second two (and probably best loved) Bourne movies with Matt Damon. Now it seems like he’ll be up for directing a hard Rated-R take on Pirates. I’m loving this!

Mania.Com reports that Dreamworks film about Edward Teach, aka the pirate Blackbeard, is still moving forward with Paul Greengrass possibly at the helm.

According to a source, Greengrass leads the short list of candidates to direct the project penned by David Franzoni (“Amistad,” “Gladiator”) which would incorporate a more serious R-rated take into the world of piracy than the “Pirates of the Caribbean” films or Disney’s family classic “Blackbeard’s Ghost”.

Producer Barry Josephson is still backing Franzoni’s take on the subject despite some reservation since it’s announcement.

Forget the nice, Disney stuff, bring on the goods!
