Overview
Morgan Adams and her slave, William Shaw, are on a quest to recover the three portions of a treasure map. Unfortunately, the final portion is held by her murderous uncle, Dawg. Her crew is skeptical of her leadership abilities, so she must complete her quest before they mutiny against her. This is made yet more difficult by the efforts of the British crown to end her pirate raids.
Synopsis
A tough-as-barnacles lady pirate enlists the aid of a thieving slave to defeat her dastardly uncle and retrieve a buried treasure in this explosion-filled high-seas adventure. From Renny Harlin, the director of "Cliffhanger" and "Die Hard 2," and starring Geena Davis (THE FLY) and Matthew Modine (MARRIED TO THE MOB).
Notes
Released theatrically in the USA on December 22, 1995.

Co-produced by Forge, in association with Laurence Mark Prods., Beckner/Gorman Prods., TeleCommunications Inc. and RCS Video.

Color by Technicolor; shot in Technovision and Panavision widescreen.

Filmed on location in Malta and Thailand.

Additional credits: Kuki Lopez Rodero (assistant director).

Michael Douglas was originally slated to play the Matthew Modine role, but he dropped out at the last minute, pleading exhaustion -- he had just finished filming "Disclosure." Many top actors were offered the role, including Mel Gibson, Harrison Ford and Keanu Reeves. However, it was difficult finding an actor who was willing to play a supporting role to Geena Davis's character.

The film was originally scheduled to be released on July 21, 1995, but was not ready (filming had only recently been completed).

This film had a budget of $80 million.

During filming, the production company, Carolco, was having serious financial problems -- which very nearly shut down production on the film. On November 10, 1995, a month before the film was released, Carolco filed for bankruptcy.
