Now, here's a little something with the potential to be quite good: Animal Kingdom
and The Rover
helmer David Michôd has been tapped to write and direct an adaptation of Michael Hastings' 2011 book The Operators
with Brad Pitt attached to star. The book? That would be an expose of American general Stanley McChrystal - the man in charge of US military forces in Afghanistan - so explosive that it led to McChrystal being fired.
Has there ever been any sort of indication that the American movie going audience has any
interest in turning out en masse to films regarding current conflicts, never mind ones critical of their own behavior? Nope, not a jot, and on that level this is a perfect recipe for losing large amounts of money. But if you're gonna do it, Michôd is a pretty great choice as the man in charge.
