Rome Sweet Rome lands writer Brian MillerApollo 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.
