A still very mysterious war film
Universal Pictures has just acquired the original screenplay by George Nolfi, director of The agency and co-writer of Prisoners of time, Ocean’s Eleven or The Bourne Ultimatum. A story that does not yet have an official title, but who will focus on three former members of the special forces who decide to return to the front in Afghanistan. Based on real events, this story tells how these three heroes went to fight alongside their Afghan counterparts, to save their families and their allies, left in the hands of the Taliban after the chaotic evacuation of the US military. While the project does not yet have an attached director, we know however that Channing Tatum and Tom Hardy to star in two main roles (certainly two of the three former soldiers). The project is also co-produced by Reid Carolin and Peter Kiernan of Free Association, and will therefore be distributed by Universal Pictures.
