Steven Spielberg (“Lincoln”) is taking the film based on the biography of Navy SEAL Chris Kyle. The film is about Texas native Kyle came to record the highest number of sniper kills for an American. Tragically, he was killed at a shooting range by a fellow vet in February. Bradley Cooper (“The Hangover Part III”) is starring.

Director Peter Berg’s “Lone Survivor”, based on the book of the same name about Navy SEAL Marcus Luttrell whose team was ambushed in 2005 by Taliban forces, is close to adding Eric Bana to its cast. Forget “Battleship”, Berg’s last true military film was “The Kingdom” which is an underrated film. This cast already includes Mark Wahlberg, Taylor Kitsch, Ben Foster and Emile Hirsch. Berg spent a month with a SEAL team to prepare for this film.

I’m officially excited for this film.

Harold Perrineau (Lost, The Matrix: Reloaded/Revolutions) is joining the ensemble cast for director Kathryn Bigelow’s (The Hurt Locker) Osama bin Laden film.

The film will follow a black ops SEAL team. The cast includes Joel Edgerton, Jessica Chastain, Edgar Ramirez, Mark Strong (Sherlock Holmes), Kyle Chandler (Friday Night Lights), Nash Edgerton and Jennifer Ehle.

Pretty solid cast so far. I did like “The Hurt Locker” though I did think it was a little overrated.
