It’s official, dudes. Spike’s Deadliest Warrior is getting its very own Hollywood feature film.
Paramount Pictures announced today that they’ve made a deal for Shawn Levy's 21 Laps Entertainment to do a feature film adaptation of Spike TV's hit series Deadliest Warrior. “Spike has some of the most innovative and forward-thinking content on television today, Deadliest Warrior being no exception. The property has proven its ability to engage audiences across multiple platforms,” said Paramount Film Group President Adam Goodman. “We hope this is the first of much future collaboration with Spike.”
As you all know, Deadliest Warrior takes history's greatest warriors and puts them face to face to determine who reigns supreme. Shawn Levy, director of Night at the Museum, and 21 Laps President Dan Levine will produce the film. The film's storyline is being kept under wraps at this moment.

Whoever said they didn't laugh with a line like this in is a god damn liar.
I actually cried. This "movie" can and will only cause butthurt to either historians, fans of the show, or fans of science fiction.
Shit noone cares about
Considering that this film is supposedly going to be historically based on facts of the groups, and most of all of those mentioned in the show are no longer around (Musketeers, knights (as shown on the show), etc), the only way to have them all around would be for a futuristic sci-fi plot involving time travel. Or they could just wing it...........
Then again, my entire post could be placed inside my spoiler, tbh >.>
