MRE Board Member’s Spec Ops Combat Coverage Becomes Hollywood Movie
The Hollywood Reporter says the documentary feature is fully funded, and will be distributed worldwide in 2016.
“DANGER CLOSE, tells the story of Quade, a gutsy female war reporter who embedded with the U.S. Special Operations A-Teams on the front lines of fighting. DANGER CLOSE is currently in production and will be released Memorial Day Weekend 2016. DANGER CLOSE will take audiences inside clandestine operations and harrowing combat never seen by the public before while offering an intimate and moving perspective to the War on Terror.”
The Hollywood Reporter notes: “Given the success of “American Sniper”, military-themed films have become a hot commodity in Hollywood. TriStar Pictures recently won a bidding war for “Shoot Like a Girl How One Woman’s War Against the Taliban Led to Her Victory Over the Department of Defense.” Fox 2000 and Reese Witherspoon and Bruna Papandrea’s Pacific Standard is moving forward on an adaptation of “Ashley’s War: The Untold Story of a Team of Women Soldiers on the Special Ops Battlefield.” And Warner Bros. is developing “It’s What I Do: A Photographer’s Life of Love and War,” with Steven Spielberg and Jennifer Lawrence attached to direct and star, respectively.
