Some guys wrote a script that answered a long-pondered question: "Man, what if the Dirty Dozen were, like, knights?" And now a studio has paid these men for that script:
Alex Litvak and Michael Finch are going medieval.
The scribes have sold their original screenplay "Medieval" to New Regency Pictures, who picked it up in a bidding environment. No producers are attached.
The script's story line plays like "The Dirty Dozen" in the age of castles, plagues and serfs, which the studio hopes to spin as a hyper-realistic action movie in the vein of "300."
I think we all can see how this will go...
