‘Deadliest Warrior’ moving from SpikeTV to silver screen


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: There are a number of television shows contemplating a leap top the silver screen. Kiefer Sutherland reportedly will bring “24” to multiplexes, while fans of “Lost” and “Mad Men” dream of feature-length extensions of the programs they love.

Toss “Deadliest Warrior” into the mix.

Paramount Pictures announced that the studio, in partnership with Shawn Levy’s 21 Laps Entertainment, will adapts Spike TV’s original series into a feature film. “Deadliest Warrior,” which just wrapped its second season, pits history’s greatest warriors against one another to determine who reigns supreme. Along with the use of 21st century science and the latest in CGI technology, the series enlists world-class fighters, historians and weapons experts to provide insight into the unique history and style of these combatants which culminates in a head-to-head final fight between two warriors to declare which one would have been the deadliest.

“Spike has some of the most innovative and forward-thinking content on television today, ‘Deadliest Warrior’ being no exception. The property has proven its ability to engage audiences across multiple platforms,” said Paramount Film Group President Adam Goodman. “We hope this is the first of much future collaboration with Spike.”



Spike already has renewed “Deadliest Warrior” for a third season. The first two seasons, it showed such memorable battles as Spartan vs. Ninja, Viking vs. Samurai, Pirate vs. Knight, Yakuza vs. Mafia and Comanche vs. Mongol. 



The film’s storyline is being kept under wraps. 

Shawn Levy and 21 Laps President Dan Levine will produce the film, with the possibility that Levy may direct, according to a release.
