The Deadliest Warrior, the Spike TV show which is being adapted to the big screen by director Shawn Levy (Night At The Museum) has found its writers. Of course, the most important part of the film will be blood gushing sound effects every six minutes, but I suppose plot and dialogue can’t hurt.

Newbie writers Patrick McKay and John D. Payne, the latter of whom has the perfect name for this assignment, will pen the script for Deadliest Warrior. The series is a reality-history-edutainment-lots-of-fighting show that simulates battles between history’s most renowned warriors, from samurais to KGB agents to super pissed off soccer moms, to see who would most likely win in a skirmish.

We don’t know what the story will be, but I’m guessing the central dramatic conflict is something like: “ninjas think swords are awesome, but aliens love rayguns, so they totally fight and it’s awesome.” I’ll go see that. (Deadline)

Shawn Levy Bringing ‘Deadliest Warrior’ To The Big Screen http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/shawn-levy-bringing-deadliest-warrior-to-the-big-screen/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/shawn-levy-bringing-deadliest-warrior-to-the-big-screen/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 Shawn Levy has just brought LARPing to a whole 'nother level. Paramount has announced that the Night At The Museum director will bring an adaptation of Spike TV's "Deadliest Warrior" to the big screen. The format of the show pits fighters throughout history against one another in a hypothetical battle to the death. Experts then gather information to determine who would be the likely victor. The plotline for the film is being kept under wraps for the moment, so sadly we won't learn what circumstances will bring an Apache and a Spetsnaz into the arena together at this time. Our condolences to the directors who missed out on this project. Peter Berg must be beside himself. (Cinema Blend)
