Streaming system HBO Max has declared Oscar winner Taika Waititi will guide the pilot for a time period comedy show about pirates, Our Flag Means Death, although Individuals of Earth founder David Jenkins will likely be showrunner.
Our Flag Means Death is loosely based on the experiences of Stede Bonnet, an aristocrat who makes the decision to give up the fantastic life and run off to sea to plunder and creep his way across the world for a pirate.
Based on TV Line, HBO Max first content main Sarah Aubrey stated in a statement:”A succession theory similar to this jumps off the page and you may immediately picture each second. David and Taika’s unique spin on Bonnet’s rollicking misadventures around the high seas, so are guaranteed to delight and thrill audiences everywhere.”
An Oscar winner for 2019’s Jojo Rabbit, Waititi will guide the pilot once he ends producing the MCU transfer Thor: Love and Thunder, a sequel to his Thor; Ragnorok blockbuster. The most current Thor was becalmed from the coronavirus pandemic and is currently due for launch in February 2022.
Waititi is greatly in demand and apart from the Thor film and Our Flag Means Death, he will also executive produce, he’s involved with BBC Two What we do at the Shadows, two animated series based on Charlie and the Chocolate Factory for Netflix and Hollywood satire The Auteur for Showtime.
The New Zealand film-maker might also need to dust off his digital tuxedo this weekend, even as We Do at the Shadows is nominated as Best Actress in the Emmy Awards, even while he’s also nominated for Outstanding Character Voice-Over Performance, as IG-11 at Disney+ string The Mandalorian.
HBO Max established in May 2020, but isn’t currently available from the UK because its parent firm HBO has a distinctive first-look content treat Sky. A few HBO Max show are very likely to display on Sky stations.
