Blackbeard biopic to be made with a shaky cam

British director Paul Greengrass (the Bourne movies) has added a new film to his list of projects: a movie about the notorious pirate Edward Teach, aka Blackbeard, who operated in the Caribbean Sea and the western Atlantic Ocean during the early 18th century.

Written by the Oscar-winning David Franzoni (King Arthur), Blackbeard will be told from the point of view of Lieutenant Robert Maynard, an ex-follower of Blackbeard’s who was later put in charge of his capture. The makers intend this to be the anti-Pirates Of The Caribbean and are aiming for an R rating in the US.
