Paramount, Platinum Dunes Making Heatseekers


Paramount Pictures has picked up the original action screenplay Heatseekers from new screenwriter George Mahaffey. Platinum Dunes’ Michael Bay, Andrew Form and Brad Fuller will produce the project.

According to Risky Business, 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.

Mahaffey is an attorney-turned-screenwriter who has sold an original pitch to Thousand Words and worked on an action feature script for producer Arnold Koppelson (Se7en).
