This was originally announced back in February, so I am a bit late, but I figured some of you may not have heard about it yet. Steven Jensen’s Independent Television Group is set to produce a limited TV series called Red Flag about the female Chinese pirate Ching Shih. Set in the early 1800's, Red Flag will follow the rise of this former prostitute through the ranks and to the top of one of China's most powerful crime syndicates. At the height of her power, Ching commanded over 100,000 sailors, 1500 plus ships and controlled the South China Sea with her great Red Flag Fleet. She also controlled and even taxed many coastal towns and villages.

No date or real details have been given, but after many years of speculations by many people, an official sequel is in the works. I found THIS article over at TMZ stating that Steven Spielberg had come up with the story idea for the sequel and would also be involved.
The movie was originally based on a story by Spielberg, who was executive producer on the film, and written by Chris...
Just a quick one, a couple of years ago I posted an article on NBC's announcement that they were beginning production on a new TV series called Crossbones. It looks like after a couple of years of delays and cast changes, they have finally set a premier date of Friday, May 30'th 2014. Crossbones was originally announced to be based on Colin Woodard's book The Republic of Pirates, which is set during the Golden Age and follows the adventures of legendary pirates Blackbeard, Black Sam Bellamy, and Charles Vane.
