Paramount Pictures Plans The Ringling Brothers Movie

Posted by at 1:35 am on April 24, 2012

Paramount Pictures has plans to bring The Ringling Brothers to the screen as a fanciful family adventure. THR says that the studio has brought aboard the writing duo of David Stem and David Weiss (The Smurfs) to provide a fictional narrative based on the seven brothers that started the famous circus.

Though the new film is described as being the vein of Night at the Museum, Paramount famously brought the Ringling Bros. to the screen in the 1952 Best Picture winner, The Greatest Show on Earth. Also a fictional take, that film employed the full Ringling Bros. and Barnum and Bailey Circus and featured a cast that included Betty Hutton, James Stewart, Charlton Heston, Cornel Wilde and more.
