New vision for Schumacher’s ‘Saints’

Shannon, Swift brought in to rewrite drama

Scribes Damian Shannon and Mark Swift have been tapped to do an overhaul on Paramount’s urban crime drama “Inland Saints,” which Joel Schumacher is attached to direct.

Project, formerly called “Fix” and set up at the studio last year based on a pitch by Kurt Sutter, had centered on the leader of a dangerous street gang who meets and falls in love with the daughter of the detective hired to bring down the gang.

Shannon and Swift are taking the project in a new direction. It is now described as an action horror pic set in a small-town desert wasteland gripped by drugs and gangs, with plot details still being hashed out.

Lorenzo di Bonaventura is producing via his Par-based shingle alongside Eli Holzman. Erik Howsam is exec producing.

Shannon and Swift wrote the 2009 relaunch of “Friday the 13th,” a Paramount-New Line co-production, which Platinum Dunes is producing and Warner Bros. is distributing. Most recently they wrote “Jerry the Giant Killer,” which Sam Raimi and Josh Donen are producing for Columbia Pictures.
