Dirk Blackman and Howard McCain are trying to corner the market on sword-swinging fantasy adventures.

Blackman and McCain have been hired to rework the script for Conan, as in the barbarian, for Lionsgate. And the writing team’s action-adventure screenplay Amazon, an epic about female warriors to which Scarlett Johansson has been attached, is sailing out of turnaround toward Lionsgate as well, with Neal Moritz and his Original Film banner coming on to produce once the deal is completed.

Director searches are under way for both.

You might be interested to know that Dirk Blackman currently operates a blog about another movie he co-wrote: Outlander. http://outlanderthemovie.wordpress.com/ So far he’s at least once made reference to Amazon.
