After we recently broke the news about the Amazing slate Millennium film is putting together here is another mention in the list titled Outpost.
Directed by Rod Lurie (The Contender) and based on a book by Jake Tapper, the pic will chronicle the true story of the 53 U.S. soldiers who battled a force of some 400 enemy insurgents in northeastern Afghanistan during Operation Enduring Freedom.
Scott Eastwood, Caleb Landry Jones and Orlando Bloom will star in Millennium Media’s Afghan war actioner.
The story goes like this Combat Outpost Keating — located at the bottom of three steep mountains just 14 miles from the Pakistani border — faced a constant threat of being attacked by the Taliban, putting the U.S. soldiers stationed there at significant risk. When the brass finally chose to close the base, the Taliban enemy found out and decided to make a statement.
The Outpost is scheduled to begin production in August and is set to beat a rival project at Sony titled Red Platoon that circles the same event.
Eastwood will play Staff Sergeant Clint Romesha and Jones will play Specialist Ty Michael Carter while Bloom has been cast in the role of 1st Lieutenant Benjamin D. Keating 3rd Squadron, 71st Cavalry Regiment, who was killed in Afghanistan.
Eastwood recently starred in Pacific Rim: Uprising and The Fate of the Furious, both for Universal and is now coming out in his full fledged Action role in The outpost.
The film will be produced by Millennium’s Avi Lerner, Trevor Short, Eastwood, Les Weldon, Matt O’Toole, Yariv Lerner, Rob Van Norden and Boaz Davidson.
We at amdb.in wish the entire team all the very best.
