Stephen Spielberg walks the plank...again!

Let the pirate jokes commence! According to USA Today, Stephen Spielberg had signed on t0 produce (and possibly direct) an adaption of Pirate Latitudes, a soon to be released novel written by the late Michael Crichton. Spielberg famously directed two adaptations of Crichton novels, Jurassic Park, and it's sequel, The Lost World. Both of which brought in a lot of box office booty.
According to Dreamworks CEO Stacey Snider, the film will be a more realistic, as opposed to Disney's Pirates of the Caribbean franchise. (Disney, it should be noted, has a distribution deal with Dreamworks.) It should also be more realistic than Hook, Spielberg's spin on the story of Peter Pan.
The novel, by the way will be dropping anchor on Nov.24.
