Rhys Darby (the current Jumanji franchise) is the leader Our flag means death, Taika Waititi’s HBO Max period comedy (Jojo Rabbit), writer David Jenkins (People of the earth), Garrett Basch (What we do in the shadows) and Dan Halsted.
The series marks the latest collaboration between Darby and Waititi. Darby starred in the HBO series Flight of the Conchords, on which Waititi was writer / director. Darby too stars in Waititi’s upcoming feature film The next goal wins, which tells the story of the American football team from Samoa, which suffered the worst loss in World Cup history.
Created by Jenkins, who also serves as a showrunner, Our flag means death is loosely based on the true adventures of Stede Bonnet, played by Darby, a wealthy farmer gentleman and child of wealth who suffers from a midlife crisis and becomes captain of The Revenge, a pirate ship in the early 18th century.
