Yes, I know Tommy was in League of Extraordinary Gentleman, but Hollywood has gone insane.

Paramount is giving Huckleberry Finn and Tom Sawyer a 21st century makeover.

The studio has picked up a spec by Andrew Burg titled Huck and Tom, with Peter Chernin and Dylan Clark producing along with Matt Lopez.

The title characters, of course, are 19th century creations of author Mark Twain and are known for their mischievous teenage adventures – Sawyer being the more shady of the two, Finn the one more likely to do the right thing. The duo first appeared in Twain's 1876 novel The Adventures of Tom Sawyer and continued their shenanigans in three additional books. There have been several film and TV adaptations of the material, from 1918's Huck and Tom, starring Jack Pickford and Robert Gordon, to Disney's 1995 version Tom and Huck, starring Jonathan Taylor Thomas and Brad Renfro.

The storyline is being kept under wraps, but the project is described as a re-imagining in the vein of Snow White and the Huntsman, focusing on Sawyer and Finn as adults. There also are supernatural elements to the script.

Chernin and Clark are the producers behind Rise of the Planet of the Apes and are in production on Oblivion, Universal’s sci-fi project starring Tom Cruise.

Lopez is a screenwriter whose credits include Bedtime Stories and The Sorcerer’s Apprentice.

Huck and Tom is the latest project Burg has set up at Paramount; Hellified, a supernatural actioner with Lorenzo di Bonaventura producing, also calls the studio home. He is repped by Brucks Entertainment. ICM repped the scribe in the deal.

Well, if Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter hits well, then this will be the norm.

I wonder if they'll make "Pride & Prejudice and Zombies"...

The Canterbury Tales from the Crypt.

A Tale of Two Cities Destroyed by Aliens.

The Old Man and the Sea Monster.



Seriously, though - just make a movie out of Gotham by Gaslight or one of those other Elseworlds books.
