The film is based on a true story, but Pacino will play Seymour Tobin, a fictional Vietnam War correspondent who isn’t afraid to tell the truth opposite Peters, who plays Bahadur, the real-life Canadian journalist that succeeded in infiltrating Somali pirates in 2008. He gave us an in-depth look at their lifestyle and famously interviewed the pirate that hijacked the ship in Captain Phillips — which starred Abdi and earned him an Oscar nomination.
Pacino recently received a Golden Globe nomination for his role in Danny Collins. He also starred in Misconduct with Anthony Hopkins and Josh Duhamel.
