Lorne Michaels is finest recognized for creating and producing the comedy sketch sequence Saturday Evening Reside. He has additionally produced a number of movies and TV exhibits, most of which cope with comedy. However his subsequent venture is one thing very completely different. It doesn’t sound prefer it’s going to be very humorous in any respect. However, it does sound prefer it’s going to be good!
Michaels will likely be producing a movie with Common Footage that may inform the story of Navy SEAL Rob O’Neill, the person who killed Osama bin Laden. The film will likely be primarily based on the biography he wrote referred to as The Operator, which is a memoir of O’Neill’s life and repair, nevertheless it particularly recounts the expertise of killing the terrorist chief.
Right here’s the official synopsis for the ebook:
This prompt New York Occasions bestseller—“a jaw-dropping, fast-paced account” (New York Put up) recounts SEAL Workforce Operator Robert O’Neill’s unimaginable four-hundred-mission profession, together with the makes an attempt to rescue “Lone Survivor” Marcus Luttrell and abducted-by-Somali-pirates Captain Richard Phillips, and which culminated within the dying of the world’s most needed terrorist—Osama bin Laden.
In The Operator, Robert O’Neill describes his idyllic childhood in Butte, Montana; his impulsive resolution to affix the SEALs; the arduous analysis and coaching course of; and the even more durable gauntlet he needed to run to affix the SEALs’ most elite unit. After formally changing into a SEAL, O’Neill would spend greater than a decade in probably the most intense counterterror effort in US historical past. For prolonged durations, not an evening handed with out him and his small staff recording a number of enemy kills—and although he was fortunate sufficient to outlive, a number of of the SEALs he’d educated with and fought beside by no means made it residence.
This significantly has the makings of an incredible movie. I like these varieties of flicks and this ebook is being tailored by Michael Russell Gunn, who labored on the Showtime sequence Billions. The Operator will likely be considered one of his first characteristic movie tasks. He’s additionally engaged on a movie referred to as Breaking Cowl, which tells the true story of posthumous Medal of Honor recipient John Chapman, the primary man to obtain the award since Vietnam.
