Paramount Unleashes “Deadliest Warrior”

John D. Payne and Patrick McKay (“Goliath”) have been hired to pen the script for “The Deadliest Warrior” at 21 Laps Entertainment and Paramount Pictures reports Variety.

The film will be based on the original TV series from Spike TV, currently in its third season, which pits history’s greatest warriors in hypothetical battles.

The storyline for the feature version is being kept under wraps. Dan Levine will produce the pic, with the possibility that Shawn Levy (“Night at the Museum”) may direct.
