Intermedia taps adventure pitch

Johnson to produce pic by scribe Ramin

Intermedia Films has paid low-six figures to acquire an untitled epic adventure pitch by screenwriter Larry Ramin, who will pen the script.

Mark Johnson, who has a first-look production deal at Intermedia, will produce the pic, which is described as being in the vein of “Gladiator” and “Braveheart.”

The project was brought into the company by Johnson, production prexy Basil Iwanyk and creative exec Alex Litvak.

Ramin, who is repped by ICM, wrote “The Lonely War,” a drama about the early years of British prime minister Winston Churchill that’s expected to start shooting this summer for HBO Films and producer Ridley Scott. David Attwater is attached to direct the film, which focuses on Churchill’s “wilderness years” during the 1930s, when he was ridiculed for warning the country about the rising political power of Adolf Hitler.

Ramin also adapted Ron Chernow’s book “Titan: The Life of John D. Rockefeller Sr.” for HBO.
