Veteran “24” helmer/executive producer Jon Cassar has been tapped to direct “The Sea Witches,” a Canadian feature about female pirates.

The project, from Toronto producers Shaftesbury Films and MacRury Here Prods., has Malcolm MacRury (“Deadwood”) writing the script, and Peter Meyboom, Scott Garvie, Christina Jennings and MacRury sharing producer credits.

No word on casting. Producers are eyeing Brazil or Australia as possible locations, and will pitch the project at the IFP market in New York this month as part of the No Borders International Co-production Market to fill out financing.
