Warner Bros. has brought in Brian Miller (writer for Apollo 18) to do work on Rome, Sweet Rome. The unique thing about this movie script is its origins from the website Reddit.com.
The script originated in 2011, where James Erwin asked users in Reddit about U.S. Marines facing the Roman legions, which Madhouse Entertainment’s Adam Kolbrenner saw and asked Erwin to develop. While Erwin wrote the original draft, WB brought in Miller to refine the concept, making tweaks such as making the Marines into Special Forces.
Kolbrenner and Madhouse will produce with Gianni Nunnari of Hollywood Gang and Safe House Pictures’ Tory Tunnell and Joby Harold, the latter of whom was instrumental in saying how the concept can work for WB. Madhouse’s Robyn Meisinger will executive produce.
