Paramount In Talks For Benghazi Attack Film
DEADLINE.COM ^ | February 10, 2014 | MIKE FLEMING JR

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 team’s 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.

It would be really interesting if they question why there wasn't beefed up security at the Embassy, why they were ordered not to go help the Ambassador, and why they were on the roof lazing targets when "nothing was in the area" that could provide support.

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.

Obama was stoned, Hillary was drunk.

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.

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?

It must be pretty bad if Ubama is calling in Hollywood to help with the coverup.

Imagine an alternate, “Lone Survivor”:

The key is they have bad radio communication, right?

Naw, in THIS version, all while as our guys are getting shot and throwing themselves off cliffs, they have PERFECT radio coms with friendly forces, and NO RESCUE.

THEN two drones show up:

The drones then provide the White House and Joint Chiefs of Staff perfect, real-time VIDEO of RPG’s showering the men’s defensive firing positions.

Again with them getting their fingers shot off, gut shots, etc.

And the Prez —fully witting of all— goes to SLEEP, the better to wake up the next morning to fly off to Vegas golf with a RAPPER.

AND STILL no rescue.

And the very gradual killing goes on and on, over the course of EIGHT HOURS, with ALL four guys dead.

AND NO RESCUE.

Turn that over in your mind.

Something very key here should give you a bad feeling about this:

If the technical advisors for this film were the actual Annex CIA people there, then HOW could this film end up as ANYTHING other than a political tool of The Establishment?

These CIA people were the ones who re-signed all those NDA’s.

These CIA people were the ones who legally changed their names.

These CIA people were the ones who moved all around the country and overseas, the better to remain inaccessible.

Nothing against them, no, but given THAT level of dedication to orders, are we REALLY to believe there will be ANY truth zingers AT ALL in this film...?

Covering fire provided by Hillary, Brennan will bayonet 50 of the attackers, and the dust-off chopper will feature a smiling, thumbs-upping, flight-helmeted GayMuzzie in the right seat.

That is horrible, but it happened.

The only speculation that I would add is did anyone feed the drone Intel to the enemy attacking those positions? Sadly, I wouldn’t be surprised.

You left out a Gay hero who saves the embassy. And the rich white big business owner who refused to sell fuel to the military.

Benghazi ping #2 today.

I have always thought this would make an incredible movie, if they get the facts right and ask the right questions.

Benghazi ping. Let Republicanprofessor know if you want on or off this ping list.

First hand account would be Hillary and Obama’s trickle down terrorist campain contributions.

And where is Hollywood antiMcCarthy outrage when Obama is sueing Dnesh for a critical film. Maybe Holywood should make a movie about IRS harassment with NSA asset surveillance strings.

Unfortunately, I think you are dead on right.

Why would hollyweird make a movie that makes their heroes look bad? How could they get first hand accounts unless they contact the survivors? Aren’t they being kept under wraps to keep the truth tamped down? The liberal machine has already picked Hillary as their next president and won’t do anything to damage her image.
