Back in the day, there was no deader genre than a pirate story. Pirate movies were too expensive to make, and they didn’t make any money back. That all changed of course with Pirates of the Caribbean, and now Black Sails is going great guns in the ratings as well.
NBC has ordered a short season of the fantasy pirate serial, Crossbones.
Starz has confirmed that it will be bringing Black Sails to the premium television network.
Michael Bay’s a busy guy these days. Right now, he’s shooting Pain and Gain, the dream project he’s always wanted to do, which is a smaller, black comedy about gym rats pulling a kidnapping.
