The Greatest Show on Earth comes to the big screen!
Paramount develops a family adventure based on the life of the seven Ringling Brothers, who created one of the most successful and largest circuses in America at the beginning 20th century. The circus was able to buy its closest competitor, Barnum and Bailey, and create what was advertised as The Greatest Show on Earth. Though plot details are still under wraps, the film is expected to take place in the present day.
The trials and tribulations of the family circus were most famously brought to the screen with Cecil B. DeMille's Academy Award-winning drama (1952).
