Now this is interesting. The last time Steven Spielberg did anything with Michael Crichton's work, he delivered the incredible Jurassic Park. Looking to develop a new Crichton project, Spielberg has selected Pirate Latitudes, a posthumously published novel by the late author.

Steven Spielberg Working on Crichton's Pirate Latitudes

Following a formula, USA Today announced that Steven Spielberg has brought on scribe David Koepp, who adapted Crichton's Jurassic Park, to put together a working screenplay for Pirate Latitudes.

Spielberg is planning on producing the adventure story set off the coast of Jamaica in 1665, but could also wind up directing.

DreamWorks Studios describes the novel, set for release Nov. 24, as the story of "a daring plan to infiltrate Port Royal, one of the world's richest and most notorious cities, and raid a Spanish galleon filled with treasure."

I am a huge fan of Crichton, and even enjoyed his Green Hollywood-bashing State of Fear. While I'm not really a Pirate genre guy unless it has Johnny Depp in it, still expect me to be holding a copy of Pirate Latitudes come November.
