‘Saints’ marching at Paramount

Schumacher set to direct urban drama

Paramount Pictures has snapped up scribe Kurt Sutter’s pitch “Inland Saints” for Joel Schumacher to direct and Lorenzo di Bonaventura to produce.

Eli Holzman is producing with di Bonaventura’s Par-based banner, di Bonaventura Pictures.

Project reunites Schumacher and di Bonaventura, who have worked together on pics including two “Batman” films, “The Client” and “Falling Down.”

“Inland Saints,” described as a supernatural urban drama about love, betrayal and need, is about teens who fall in love. He’s the leader of a dangerous street gang; she’s the daughter of the detective hired to bring down the gang.

Schumacher (“The Phantom of the Opera,” “Veronica Guerin”) was recently in theaters with Jim Carrey starrer “Number 23.”

Sutter, an exec producer on FX cop drama “The Shield,” is teaming with Art and John Linson on another FX series tentatively titled “Charming, CA,” about outlaw motorcycle clubs. He’s also set up several scripts, including “The Unforgettable” and “In Crime.”

Upcoming films at di Bonaventura Pictures (“Shooter”) include “Stardust” and “Transformers.”
