Danny DeVito’s big screen adaptation of ‘The True Confessions of Charlotte Doyle’, which is due to shoot in Ireland in 2012, will feature stars Morgan Freeman (The Shawshank Redemption, The Dark Knight) and Pierce Brosnan.

Oscar nominated actor Danny DeVito (L.A. Confidential, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest) adapted the screenplay from children’s author Avi (Edward Irving Wotis). Set in 1930, it tells the story of young Charlotte Doyle and her adventures on the high seas with a ruthless captain and a mutinous crew.

The project is long in development, originally pitched for shooting in 2008 with Irish actress Saoirse Ronan attached to play the lead. Ronan has likely outgrown the part so a new lead is expected to be announced later.

The films is being produced by Beau St.Clair for Irish DreamTime, in association with Irish based Subotica Films. Other producers on the feature are DeVito along with Lori McCreary for Revelations Entertainment and Michael Weisler for Clear Black Films.

'The True Confessions of Charlotte Doyle' is set to film in Ireland in 2012. DeVito visited Ireland earlier this year to scount locations around the country.

UK based sales company Intandem will handle international sales on the feature.
