Paramount And Bad Robot Hire Writers For BOILERPLATE




Paramount and J.J. Abrams' Bad robot have hired JD Payne and Patrick McKay to write the script for BOILERPLATEbased on the Paul Guinan and Anina Bennett graphic novel Boilerplate: History’s Mechanical Marvel.


The plot goes something like this, "the robot Boilerplate was built in the late 19th Century to replace men in battle. The robot is depicted in the Spanish-American War and WWI, and is pictured Zelig-like in meetings with the likes of Teddy Roosevelt and Mark Twain." Sounds pretty cool doesn't it!

The writing duo have also scripted Goliath (from the Old Testament) that Relativity Media is developing, with hopes that Dwayne Johnson and Taylor Lautner could play the two main characters. They're also develpong Deadliest Warrior based on the hit Spike TV series, which Shawn Levy is producing for Paramount.
