Back in 2009, Jerry Bruckheimer Films tapped 3:10 to Yuma scriptwriters, Michael Brandt and Derek Hass, to adapt their short story Shake for the big screen.
Now, according to TheWrap, the project has found a home at Paramount Pictures, with Bruckheimer producing for the studio.
“Taking place during an earthquake, the story follows an FBI agent Tim Cooper with Parkinson’s disease, and his partner, who are trying to track down a brutal serial killer who has been their target for years in Los Angeles.”
“Shake” first appeared on Popcorn Fiction, a website created by Haas for screenwriters to show off hard-boiled fiction. Bruckheimer reportedly paid seven figures to the writers for the deal in 2009.
