Journalist Hannah Allman's experience covering the Iraq War has been optioned for a big screen biopic. According to The Hollywood Reporter, writer Bonnie Garvin has purchased the rights and will produce the film.
The project will follow Allam as she heads out to save the life of her interpreter Ban Sarhan and her interpreter's newborn son. Sarhan was on assignment with Allam in 2003, when Iraqi insurgents learned that Sarhan was working for the American media. They murdered her husband, her four-year-old daughter, and her mother-in-law. Allam helped to sneak the Iraqi woman and her baby out of the country.
Garvin stated, "These young women went through one of the most horrific experiences anybody could go through, and yet out of that came this incredibly positive outcome." The film does not have a set start date at this time.
