Paramount has purchased George Mahaffey’s screenplay Heatseekers for Michael Bay and Platinum Dunes (Andrew Form and Brad Fuller) to produce. According to THR, the deal for the original action screenplay was in the mid-six figures. Here’s the synopsis:
In the mold of Fast & Furious and Point Break, Heatseekers follows a young ex-military pilot who infiltrates a gang of aerial “pirates” working out of Bangkok and takes part in an elaborate tower heist using powered gliders and parachutes.
I spoke to Form and Fuller yesterday and they said they didn’t have any projects ready to go, so this one is a long way out. Not sure about this one…but if they get the right director it could be fun.
