Syfy is putting a fresh spin on Treasure Island, the classic swashbuckling adventure tale by Robert Louis Stevenson. The network will air Treasure Island, starring Elijah Wood, Eddie Izzard, Donald Sutherland, Toby Regbo, Shirley Henderson, and Nina Sosanya, on May 5th from 7-11PM (ET/PT)
 
Wood will play Ben Gunn, Izzard is Long John Silver, and Sutherland is Flint. Steve Barron (Merlin) directs from a script by Stewart Harcourt (Hearts and Bones).
 
The Plot:
 
Toby Regbo (Harry Potter) plays the young Jim Hawkins, who is unexpectedly drawn into the world of piracy when he discovers a treasure map and finds himself battling Silver for the treasure — and his life.
