Universal won the rights to Marcus Luttrell's life story. According to Variety, Peter Berg will direct the Navy-themed drama.
The story will revolve around the true story of a Navy Seal who took his team into Afghanistan on a mission to kill a Taliban leader. Marcus Luttrell was the only one to survive.
Berg and Luttrell, both Texas natives, bonded early on, paving the way for Universal to buy the rights to Luttrell's book about his plight. The film is suspected to become Berg's very next project, with a start date of early next year.
