Paramount Pictures has brought in Carl Ellsworth to rework the action-thriller screenplay C.O.D. (Cash on Delivery), according to The Hollywood Reporter.

DreamWorks pre-emptively picked up Lars Jacobson's original script in March 2008 for mid-six figures, and Paramount held onto it when DreamWorks moved out on its own.

The C.O.D. story line follows a New York City bike messenger who is forced to deliver three bombs under threat of his family receiving one. He must avoid capture by not only the authorities but also by an entire nation looking to stop him.

No production date has been set.
