Oliver Stone has hired Woody Harrelson for his upcoming Vietnam War drama Pinkville. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Bruce Willis and Channing Tatum will also star in this United Artists film.
The project is based on the infamous 1968 My Lai Massacre. Upwards of 500 innocent people, including women, children, and the elderly, were murdered by U.S. soldiers. The massacre came as a major turning point in the war.
Harrelson will be playing Col. Henderson, the officer in charge of the task force that committed the massacre. Mikko Alanne wrote the script. Production is set to start early next year.
