Paramount and Platinum Sign Producing Deal

ON

In an article at Variety announcing that Paramount Pictures has signed a first-look producing deal with Michael Bay, Brad Fuller and Andrew Form’s Platinum Dunes, the trade says which two projects are going to move forward first.

The relationship between the two companies gets under way with previously-announced The Butcherhouse Chronicles, a thriller that is being written by Stephen Susco (The Grudge) and is being likened to The Breakfast Club in a haunted house.

The producers have also come aboard the Paramount project Property of the State, a Howard Franklin-scripted thriller about a young white-collar criminal whose attempt to straighten out his life is imperiled by an obsessive and menacing parole officer.
