Studio teams with Shawn Levy's co. on action pic

Paramount Pictures has inked a deal with Shawn Levy’s 21 Laps Entertainment to make “Deadliest Warrior” for the bigscreen.

Project, based on the original TV series from Spike TV, marks the first time that Spike and Par, both owned by Viacom, have worked together.

Storyline for feature version is being kept under wraps, but the nonfiction TV series pits historical warriors against one another in battle, i.e., Attila the Hun vs. Alexander the Great.

Levy and 21 Laps prexy Dan Levine will produce the pic, with the possibility that Levy may direct.

21 Laps is the shingle behind the “Night at the Museum” franchise and current action pic “Real Steel,” starring Hugh Jackman, for DreamWorks.

Announcement of the project comes after the show’s season two finale wrapped. Spike TV has renewed the series for a third season.
