Coraci To Helm Pirate Comedy

20th Century Fox is ignoring the fact that, other than Disney, pretty much no studio has made a successful pirate movie since the days of Errol Flynn. They've just signed director Frank Coraci to take the wheel of "Part-Time Pirates," a project being billed as an "adventure-comedy."

The story--as scripted by Hollywood newbie Jordan Cahan--involves some thirty-something yobbos who break the monotony by raiding the posh yachts of their corporate bosses and taking to the seven seas, yo ho, and thereby discover the meaning of manhood. So: think "Office Space" meets "City Slickers" crossed with "The Crimson Permanent Assurance."

No word on whether Adam Sandler will be involved. Coraci most recently directed the Sandler vehicle "Click," and also helmed "The Wedding Singer" and "The Waterboy."
