'Rome Sweet Rome' Time-Travel Adventure Gets Writer Brian Miller

The 'Apollo 18' writer will take a crack at adapting a 2011 Reddit thread that was acquired by Warner Bros.

Apollo 18 screenwriter Brian Miller has come aboard to write the screenplay for Rome Sweet Rome for Warner Bros.

The studio acquired a pitch in October 2011 from Iowa author and two-time Jeopardy! champion James Erwin back in October 2011. The pitch was based on his Reddit thread, which sought an answer to the following question, "What if a unit of U.S. Marines are transported back in time and forced to do battle with Roman legions?" James Erwin wrote a draft of the screenplay, but the studio wanted a fresh take, which is where Brian Miller comes in. The story has already been tweaked slightly, with the plot centering on a U.S. Special Forces team, instead of Marines.

Adam Kolbrenner is producing for Madhouse Entertainment, along with Hollywood Gang's Gianni Nunnari, and Safe House Pictures' Tory Tunnell and Joby Harold. No production schedule was given.

    Wasn't there a board game back in the 90's with the same idea? Transport a warrior from different eras to fight against a common foe? No? Am i the only one who watched TV back in the good old days? Ok.
