Paradox Rides The “Chariots of the Gods”

Paradox Entertainment has acquired screen rights to the 1968 controversial best-seller”Chariots of the Gods” reports Variety.

Having sold 68 million copies worldwide over the past few decades, Erich von Daniken’s book explores evidence that different ancient civilizations were visited by extraterrestrials.

That premise will be turned into a science fiction film. The idea has already formed the basis of various films and television from the “Stargate” franchise to the most recent “Indiana Jones” adventure.

Fredrik Malmberg and Mark Ordesky will produce.
