Mickey Rourke Joins Lundgren In War Pigs


We found out a while back that Dolph Lundgren had joined a WW2 pic called War Pigs.  Others in the movie include Chuck Liddell and Luke Goss.  It seems that Mickey Rourke can now be added to the cast as well.

Outline for the movie:

At the peak of the WWII, the allies advance against Nazi Germany, a disgraced US Army Captain Jack Wosick, is “volunteered” by Major A.J. Redding to train a rag tag unit of misfit soldiers known as the “War Pigs.” Jack is to prepare them for select and secret missions against one of Hitler’s super weapons: the powerful V-3. To get his unorthodox assignment accomplished Redding pairs Jack with a battle hardened German born French Legionnaire, Captain Peter Picault. Together, they are ordered to train the War Pigs into a functioning reconnaissance unit.

Training begins under the battle tested guidance of Captain Picault, but is made more difficult by Sergeant August Chambers and his lack luster belief in the Army’s officer Corp.  During the training, the men use various unorthodox commando tactics including weapons training, knife fighting, observation, deception, and rule-breaking. Jack, with the help of Picault, gradually earns the respect of his new unit. Jack’s War Pigs are ready for their fight against Hitler and their mission against the Nazi Wonder Weapon and must go behind enemy lines.

Not so fast though, the project seems to not even be in DTV league, yet.  There’s a kickstarter campaign going to get this movie off the ground with $353 pledged for a $7,500 target.  The cynic in me fears Rourke appearing for 4 minutes on screen, but prominently on the DVD cover.  But we’ll keep an eye out…
