〉The script for this interesting story of the early days of the war in Afghanistan is ready to find the perfect director.
Just weeks after 9/11, special forces soldiers are sent to Afghanistan. The small team’s mission is to take over the city of Mazar-e-Sharif, but modern-day weapons prove useless in the rugged terrain. With the help of the Northern Alliance, these soldiers are retrained to become a deadly force, using only their personal supplies and weapons on horseback.
This is the story of HORSE SOLDIERS. Based on a true story, this film has been adapted by Ted Tally and Peter Craig from Doug Stanton’s book, and is now in active development at Lionsgate now that Disney has stepped aside. Currently, the search is on for a director, and the news is they want a fresh director for this. Names have been tossed around and the search has been ongoing for a few months now, but the names currently on the shortlist are all prolific filmmakers who are ready for a project that can take their careers to the next level.
Jerry Bruckheimer has been on this project 2011, and he is producing alongside Molly Smith at Black Label Media. Geoff Shaevitz and James Myers will be overseeing for Lionsgate.
