Posted on 02/10/2014 4:46:57 PM PST by FreeAtlanta
EXCLUSIVE: Paramount is negotiating with 3 Arts Entertainment to acquire the film rights to the forthcoming book Thirteen Hours: A Firsthand Account Of What Really Happened In Benghazi. The book, scheduled for publication in late spring, was written by author Mitchell Zuckoff with surviving members of the Annex Security Team who fought the battle. Their names are being kept confidential. The book is going to be published by Twelve, an imprint of Grand Central Publishing/Hachette Book Group, with Editorial Director Sean Desmond editing.
The script will be written by Chuck Hogan, whose novel Prince Of Thieves became the Ben Affleck-directed The Town and who teamed with Guillermo del Toro to write the vampire novel trilogy The Strain which is being turned into a series by FX. Erwin Stoff will produce, and Richard Abate is executive producer. Stoff is producing the upcoming Unbroken and Edge Of Tomorrow.
Relying on the security teams exclusive firsthand accounts, Thirteen Hours presents a nonfiction narrative of the attack on the U.S. Special Mission Compound and a nearby CIA Annex in Benghazi on the eleventh anniversary of 9/11. Four Americans were killed in the attack, including U.S. Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens. Security team members whose actions are recounted in the book and who will be featured in the film have been honored by the U.S. State Department and the CIA for their heroism. Zuckoff wrote the bestsellers Frozen In Time: An Epic Story Of Survival And A Modern Quest For Lost Heroes Of World War II and Lost In Shangri-La: A True Story Of Survival, Adventure, And The Most Incredible Rescue Mission Of World War II.
The book and producing deals are being made by CAA and Hogan is repped by WME.

There is so much that is unanswered. There is so much material that a great and informative movie could be made about, but it has to lay blame on Obama and Hillary.
BTW, was Obama even coherent the night of the attack? Where was he?
Nothing quite like revisionist history on film to keep the masses ignorant...pass the pablum.
OMG, like Hollywood can make an factual film.
Is Michael Moore going to do it?
Nobody at all to take 3PM call.
3:43PM EDT to be exact, according to wiki
That is what I am afraid of, but at least it gives us an opportunity to talk to family, coworkers and friends about the national disgrace and what we know about it.
It is beyond ironic.
We have a bunch of lazy, good-timing Democrats running our nation into the ground and putting EVERYONE in danger.
I don’t understand how they retain office.
How can they make a movie when supposedly nobody has a clue what happened that night? /rhetorical
Here it comes. Hillary Clinton as Rambo.
Could be good if they hire Miley Cyrus to play Hillary
What is the title? “What Difference Does It Make?”
hadaclue is asking if MICHAEL MOORE will make the film. I wouldn't surprised. I don't trust Hollyweird, do you?
1. Michael Moore will make the movie.
2. There will HAVE to be a pretty woman in the film. NO WOMEN were involved, but, knowing Hollyweird, there will be a beautiful woman and
3. SOMEHOW the film will WRITE in how she is to lose most of her clothes.
4. The VILLAINS will be, NATURALLY straight, white males.
5. They will be UBER nasty, too.
6. ANY good guy will be a minority good guy. THAT is set in stone.
7. Christianity will SOMEHOW be mocked, however covertly...especially Catholics and evangelicals.
Have I left any stone unturned?
Oh,goodie goodie! A campaign film for the Former Twelfth Lady’s upcoming campaign.I’m sure it’ll be called “No Difference At All”.
How can they make a film when they can’t even talk to the people who were at the second facility?
FREE THE BENGHAZI 40!!!!!
Who killed Stevens ONLY because he was gay
te he... ha ha... Oh ho ho ho... BWAA HAA HAA HAA... OH STOP IT! YOU'RE KILLING ME!
