Paramount to Show Us Doc Holliday ‘s Adventures


Paramount Pictures has bought Chad St. John’s action adventure spec script The Further Adventures of Doc Holliday and hopes to turn it into a Western-style tentpole.

Lorenzo di Bonaventura (“Transformers” films) will produce via his Paramount-based company.

The studio is keeping the story under wraps, but the project is described as a history-based action adventure tale in the vein of the “Pirates of the Caribbean” films.

The famously tuberculosis-ridden gunfighter Holliday is best known for his friendship with Wyatt Earp and for his role in 1881’s Gunfight at the O.K. Corral in Tombstone, Arizona.
