Paramount Pictures and Shawn Levy’s 21 Laps Entertainment are teaming for a big-screen adaptation of Spike TV’s original hit series “Deadliest Warrior.”
The series, which just wrapped its second season, pits history’s greatest warriors against one another to determine who reigns supreme. Using 21st century science, the latest in CGI technology, and the insights of world-class fighters, historians and weapons experts are combined to theorise the history and style of these combatants and then match them to see who would win.
The first two seasons included battles like Spartan vs. Ninja, Viking vs. Samurai, Pirate vs. Knight, Yakuza vs. Mafia and Comanche vs. Mongol. The storyline for the feature is being kept under wraps.
Levy (“Night at the Museum”) and Dan Levine will produce and Levy may potentially direct.
