Warner Bros. Developing Treasure Hunters Movie With ‘Maze Runner’ Writer

Warner Bros., Roy Lee and 1821 Media are developing an untitled treasure hunters movie with “Maze Runner” screenwriter Grant Pierce Myers on board.

The project is based on a concept by Terry Dougas of 1821 Media and Warner Bros. exec VP Jon Berg. The story follows a group of treasure hunters as they steal artifacts from museums around the globe, journeying through the criminal underworld, in pursuit of the greatest treasure of all time.

Paris Kasidokostas-Latsis and Dougas will produce alongside Lee under his Warner-based Vertigo Entertainment banner. Lee’s a producer on “The Lego Movie” and an exec producer on “The Departed,” as well as the “Grudge” and “How to Train Your Dragon” franchises.

1821 Media recently partnered with Lionsgate to adapt the graphic novel “Romeo and Juliet: The War” into a feature film with Stan Lee’s POW! Entertainment. Kasidokostas-Latsis and Dougas recently produced “Grandma,” starring Lily Tomlin, and “Jane Got a Gun,” starring Natalie Portman.

“Given their success with franchises such as Harry Potter and the Batman series, Warner Bros. is the ideal partner to develop this action thriller which has enormous franchise potential,” said Kasidokostas-Latsis and Dougas.

The deal was negotiated by Loeb & Loeb’s Craig Emanuel. Myers is represented by Paradigm.
