How To Train Your Dragon Director Dean DeBlois Will Direct Treasure Island For Universal Pictures

Universal Pictures is set to produce another feature film that will be inspired by Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic 1883 novel, Treasure Island. The studio has also hired two-time Oscar nominated How to Train Your Dragon filmmaker Dean DeBlois to direct it.

DeBlois will also help work on the script, which is being written by Beauty and the Beast scribe Evan Spiliotopoulos. There’s no word when the film will go into production as DeBlois is also set to direct Micronauts for Paramount Pictures and Hasbro. With Micronauts having a release date of June 4th, 2021, I imagine that movie will get made first.

Treasure Island tells the story of “young Jim Hawkins who is torn between his loyalty to his benefactors and his affection for Pirate Captain Long John Silver as they seek a buried pirate treasure.” I love the story of Treasure Island and it’ll be interesting to see how this film turns out.
