Paramount buys Hunchback action comedy script

It is a good day for fledgling director/screenwriters Willie Block and Jake Emanuel. Paramount Pictures has picked up a script from the duo that is said to blend elements of The Hunchback of Notre Dame and original material with a Pirates of the Caribbean flavor.

A high-concept adventure, says The Hollywood Reporter's Risky Business blog, the feature will be produced by Di Bonaventura Pictures, although any further information is being kept decidedly under wraps.

For an indicator of what to expect, you need look no further than Block and Emanuel’s 2006 short titled Gizor & Gorm the plot of which reads: “The chaos of war has reigned within the realm of Vulgard since the fall of the Thangbrand Kingdom. Prince Argo of the Arturian line has been abducted by the daughters of Kypela. They must be stopped at all costs.”

And with most of that cast reading as “Fertility Maidens” and “Warrior Women” their upcoming endeavour promises to be, if anything, unique.
