Paramount Pictures and sister company Spike TV are joining forces to turn the cable channel’s series Deadliest Warrior into a feature film. Shawn Levy and Dan Levine will produce through his 21 Laps banner. Levy might direct. The show pits the great warriors of history against one another to see who would prevail. Past combatants have included spartans vs ninjas, yakuza vs mafia. Levy right now is directing the robot mano a mano pic Real Steel for DreamWorks. Unscripted cable is suddenly very cool fodder for film content: Fox is separately working with John Moore on a feature adaptation of cable TV’s Ice Road Truckers.
