Pirates: they're not just for Gore Verbinski and Johnny Depp anymore. Even Steven Spielberg, who keeps piling on the projects as if he's deliberately trying to never make his Lincoln biopic, is now heading to the high seas, with plans to adapt Michael Crichton's final novel Pirate Latitudes for the screen.

Spielberg, of course, adapted Crichton's Jurassic Park and The Lost World in the 90s, and he's also bringing back the screenwriter for both of those films, David Koepp, to adapt this one. Spielberg's DreamWorks partner Stacey Snider told USA Today, "Anything that Michael wrote, Steven would be keenly interested to read. But without Michael knowing it, or even me knowing it, it turns out Steven always wanted to direct his own pirate film."

We could choose to view this as a bad thing, that Lincoln is further avoiding Lincoln and maybe his Tin-Tin movie by picking up more and more projects. Or we could look on the bright side: this might mean he's just too busy to make Indy 5. The choice is yours.
