First look at Sky TV's adaptation of Treasure Island with Eddie Izzard as the nefarious Long John Silver, Hollywood icon Elijah Wood playing Ben Gunn and a glimpse of one of Screenterrier's rising stars from 2009, 19 year old Toby Regbo playing young hero Jim Hawkins.

Toby is set to appear in the final Harry Potter film as Young Dumbledore, and stars in the lead role of James Sveck in Roberto Faenza's New York-based Someday This Pain Will Be Useful to You.

The rest of the cast includes Rupert Penry-Jones, Phillip Glenister, David Harewood, Danny Mays, Keith Allen and  Donald Sutherland.

The two part drama filmed in Ireland at the end of last year and on location in Puerto Rico and is expected to be broadcast on Sky during Christmas 2011.

Treasure Island is being produced for Sky by Kindle Entertainment, RHI Entertainment and Parallel Films.
