Paramount takes ‘Holliday’

Di Bonaventura to produce gunfighter tale

Paramount Pictures has snapped up Chad St. John’s action adventure spec “The Further Adventures of Doc Holliday” in the hopes of turning it into a Western-style tentpole.

Lorenzo di Bonaventura, who produced the studio’s “Transformers” films, is onboard to produce via his Par-based shingle.

Studio is keeping the logline under wraps, but the project is described as a history-based action adventure tale in the vein of “Pirates of the Caribbean.”

The famously tuberculosis-ridden gunfighter Holliday is best known for his friendship with Western lawman Wyatt Earp and for his role in 1881’s Gunfight at the O.K. Corral in Tombstone, Ariz.

St. John is attached to an array of Warner Bros. projects including “The Days Before,” “Sergeant Rock,” “Motor City” and a remake of “Outland.”

“The Days Before” was listed at No. 10 on this year’s Black List, which compiles the film industry’s best unproduced screenplays.
