Paramount Plans A “Doc Holliday” Franchise

Paramount Pictures is developing “Sergeant Rock” and “Outland” scribe Chad St. John’s action adventure spec script “The Further Adventures of Doc Holliday” reports Variety.

The “Pirates of the Caribbean”-esque history-based action adventure will follow the tuberculosis-ridden gunfighter who formed a strong friendship with Western lawman Wyatt Earp.

Val Kilmer memorably played him in 1993’s “Tombstone” and a year later Dennis Quaid starred as Holliday in Kevin Costner’s “Wyatt Earp”. Lorenzo di Bonaventura (“Transformers”) is onboard to produce.
