The pirate comedy blew out the audience’s mind by dropping a trailer, set to “Heart’s Crazy on You”, which focuses on Stede-“the gentleman pirate” who has growing pains adjusting to new life on the high seas.
Our Flag Means Death, featuring Rhys Darby as “gentleman pirate” Stede Bonnet, is another example of Taika Waititi’s ability to amuse his audience. Announced earlier this year, the show will unite Taika Waititi and Rhys Darby for the project. The pilot episode will be directed by Waititi, winner of the Oscar Award for Jojo Rabbit.
The story will focus on Stede Bonnet’s life, who after a midlife crisis in 1717 will live an aristocratic life to become the captain of the pirate ship Revenge.
