John Milius has been hired to write the drama, The Chosen Few for 2929 Entertainment.
The film will be based on Defense Department analyst Julie Precious' story Task Force Faith, which recounts the Chosin Reservoir Battle, adds Variety. During the battle, a group of 2,500 undertrained and ill-equipped U.S. Army soldiers, along with 15,000 Marines, fought back against the surprise attack of more than 100,000 Chinese troops. After several days of fighting in subzero temperatures, the efforts of the soldiers allowed the Marines to battle their way out.
No production details were available for The Chosen Few.
