Paramount has scooped up George Mahaffey’s spec script “Heatseekers” for Michael Bay’s Platinum Dunes to produce.
Logline for the action pic wasn’t immediatley available.
Producers are Bay and Platinum Dune colleagues Andrew Form and Brad Fuller.
No director is yet attached to the project.
Deal is good news for writers and agents, considering the dramatic slump in the spec market.
Mahaffey’s previous scripts are “Open Season,” an original pitch picked up by Thousand Words, and “Airborne” for Arnold Kopleson.
Mahaffey is repped by Paradigm and Generate.
