The movie based on Marcus Luttrell's memoir Lone Survivor: The Eyewitness Account of Operation Redwing and the Lost Heroes of SEAL Team 10 is locked and ready for its December 27th release.
In this preview clip, director Peter Berg and Luttrell talk about the mission behind the movie and how the former SEAL has devoted the past few years to telling the story of the men he served with on Operation Redwing.
The movie stars Mark Wahlberg, Eric Bana, Emile Hirsch, Ben Foster and Taylor Kitsch as the Navy SEALs whose 2005 mission on the Afghanistan/Pakistan border was to either kill or capture a Taliban leader. If you haven't read the book, the title pretty much gives away the ending.
Berg had plans to make this movie before Universal convinced at the last minute to take on the enormous task of making last year's Battleship movie. This picture looks much different in tone, subject and execution than that sci-fi shoot-'em-up and looks like the kind of project you'd expect from the guy who directed Friday Night Lights.
Obviously, a lot more to come on this one. Keep checking back for updates as we have them.
