"Treasure Island" (2012) is a special two-part movie event from RHI Entertainment. The new adaptation of the Robert Louis Stevenson classic stars Eddie Izzard ("The Riches," "Oceans 12," "Oceans 13") as Long John Silver, Elijah Wood ("The Lord of the Rings," "Everything Is Illuminated") as Ben Gunn, and Donald Sutherland ("Pride & Prejudice," "Ordinary People," "M*A*S*H") as Flint. 

Toby Regbo ("Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2" takes on the role of the gutsy, eager and courageous young Jim Hawkins. Jim is unexpectedly drawn into the world of piracy when he discovers a treasure map and finds himself battling with Silver for the treasure and his life. Shirley Henderson ("Harry Potter," "Bridget Jones") plays his mother and Nina Sosanya ("Love Actually") is Silver's wife.

The cast also includes Phillip Glenister ("Ashes to Ashes," "Mad Dogs") as Captain Smollet, Rupert Penry-Jones ("Spooks," "Whitechapel") as Squire Trelawney and Daniel Mays ("Made in Dagenham," "Plus One," "Red Riding") as Dr. Livesey — who all lead the voyage with Jim aboard The Hispaniola. David Harewood ("Strike Back," "Mrs. Mandela," "Blood Diamond") and Keith Allen ("Robin Hood," "Bodies") are the pirates, Bones and Pew, who lead Jim into the murky world of piracy.

Executive Producers are Robert Halmi Sr. for RHI Entertainment, Alan Moloney for Parallel Films, Mark Grenside for MNG Films, Melanie Stokes and Anne Brogan for Kindle Entertainment and Annie Harrison-Baxter for Sky.

The producer is Laurie Borg ("Made in Dagenham," "Sense and Sensibility," "Little Voice") and it is written by Stewart Harcourt ("Hearts & Bones," "Poirot," "Marple"). "Treasure Island" is directed by Steve Barron ("Merlin," "Arabian Nights").
