Universal is Assembling The Knights Templar


Universal Pictures is developing The Knights Templar, picking up a spec script from Adam Torchia and Justin Stanley for Marc Platt and Wanted director Timur Bekmambetov to produce.

Variety says the film puts a horror spin on the famed organization of fighters from the Middle Ages, with the Knights Templar, fresh from the Crusades, forced to fend off an invading vampire army set on destroying the Holy Grail.

Platt will produce “Knights Templar” through his Marc Platt Productions, while Bekmambetov will shepherd the project through his Bazelevs Productions, with Jim Lemley.
