Paramount has picked up the action screenplay Heatseekers for Michael Bay to get his sticky fingers all over, a.k.a. produce, not direct. Bay’s company Platinum Dunes signed a first-look deal with Paramount last October to make lower-budget genre pictures, and Heatseekers written by newbie Georgie Mahaffey is the first project to get the Bay mushroom cloud seal of approval.

In the mold of "Fast & Furious" and "Poin Break," "Heatseekers" follows a young ex-military pilot who infiltrates a gang of aerial "pirates" working out of Bangkok and takes part in an elaborate tower heist using powered gliders and parachutes.

Are people just making up professions now? Bank-robber-surfer makes sense, but an aerial pirate? That’s something a Kevin James character writes down on a job application to impress a sexy CEO. Then the next thing you know he’s ziplining off a building in Bangkok where his ineptitude leads to his success. Too bad an Asian street gang led by Bay has already had their way with James’s dream girl while he was up in the air jackin’ around. The title HEATSEEKERS! flies at the screen. Roll credits. (THR)
