Gladiator Director Plans Captain Kidd Movie

7 February 2001 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Actors Jude Law and Sadie Frost are among an array of British stars set to headline Ridley Scott's pirate movie based on the story of Captain Kidd. Lena Headey Ewen Bremner and Rupert Graves are also being eyed by Scott to star in the film. Miranda Richardson is set to briefly reprise the Queen Elizabeth I role she once played for laughs in the British Blackadder TV series. Kidd's sworn enemies in the movie would be Alan Rickman as an admiral and James Coburn as a rival buccaneer. Scott and producer Jerry Bruckheimer are keen to point out that their Disney-backed movie is definitely not a comedy. A senior source explains, "They are looking at something in the mold of Errol Flynn in The Sea Hawk. But with special effects, computer graphics and the like they can achieve so much more. "But the studio would like an ensemble cast, very young and glamorous, to rival some other movies being made like Ocean's Eleven." »
