Nicholas Schoenfeld's Attila origin story sells to Warner Bros.

Attila original story from Nicholas Schoenfeld appeals to Warners. Newcomer Nicholas Schoenfeld's original pitch for an origin story about Attila, leader of the huns from 434 until his death in 453 on his wedding night, has sold to Warner Bros. Deadline reports the tone of Attila is similar to Dracula Year Zero, scripted by Burk Sharpless and Matt Sazama, Schoenfeld’s mentors. The last Attila I saw was TV's Attila the Hun with Gerard Butler, Powers Boothe, Simmone Jade Mackinnon, Reg Rogers, Alice Krige, Pauline Lynch, Steven Berkoff and Andrew Pleavin starring. A none-too-shabby affair. Still, one wonders if this will spark or end up in the 300-styled plague of offshoots, including the recent and appalling Immortals.
