New Writers for Schumacher's Inland Saints

Scribes Damian Shannon and Mark Swift have been tapped to do an overhaul on Paramount's urban crime drama "Inland Saints," which Joel Schumacher is attached to direct.

Project, formerly called "Fix" and set up at the studio last year based on a pitch by Kurt Sutter, had centered on the leader of a dangerous street gang who meets and falls in love with the daughter of the detective hired to bring down the gang.

Shannon and Swift are taking the project in a new direction. It is now described as an action horror pic set in a small-town desert wasteland gripped by drugs and gangs, with plot details still being hashed out.

Lorenzo di Bonaventura is producing via his Par-based shingle alongside Eli Holzman. Erik Howsam is exec producing.

The first idea sounded more better than the second idea. Still not sure about this. Damian Shannon and Mark Swift wrote the 2003 horror flick "Freddy vs. Jason" which got alot of negative buzz from people. Than again, Schumacher is directing this so It will still probably end up like crap.
