Paramount Pictures has picked up action adventure spec The Further Adventures of Doc Holliday from Chad St. John and plans to adapt into a Western-style tentpole.

According to Variety, the studio is keeping the plot under wraps, but the story is described as a history-based action adventure tale in the vein of Pirates of the Caribbean.

The famously tuberculosis-ridden gunfighter Holliday is best known for his friendship with Western lawman Wyatt Earp and for his role in 1881's Gunfight at the O.K. Corral in Tombstone, Ariz.

No production date has been set.
