Goldsman Tackling “Rainbow Six” For Paramount

Akiva Goldsman and his Weed Road production company banner have reportedly signed a two-year first-look deal at Paramount Pictures after many years spent at Warner Bros. Pictures.

As part of the new deal, Goldsman will produce the long in the works film adaptation of the Tom Clancy bestseller “Rainbow Six” which Josh Appelbaum and Corin Nemec are adapting. He will also develop a film adaptation of the “Ologies” series of fanatasy books.

Goldsman shares producing and screenwriting credit for next month’s “The Dark Tower,” has a story credit on “Transformers: The Last Knight,” penned the script for “Rings” earlier this year, produced “King Arthur: Legend of the Sword,” and is an executive producer on the pilot for both “Star Trek: Discovery” and the “Bumblebee” movie.
