The project is based on Marcus Luttrell's non-fiction book, describing how he and his Navy SEAL team survived after being ambushed in the Hindu Kush mountains of Afghanistan in 2005. Mark Wahlberg is attached to portray Luttrell, with Ben Foster, Taylor Kitsch, and Emile Hirsch playing the other Navy SEAL's. No details were given for Eric Bana's character.
Peter Berg is directing from his own screenplay, adapted from Marcus Luttrell's book. Akiva Goldsman, Sarah Aubrey, Barry Spikings, Randall Emmett, George Furla, Stephen Levinson, and Mark Wahlberg are producing.
Shooting is scheduled to begin September 25 in New Mexico.
