John Krasinski To Lead Bay’s Military Thriller


Michael Bay is in negotiations to direct upcoming thriller “13 Hours,” a film adaptation of Mitchell Zuckoff’s work about the Benghazi political scandal, for Paramount Pictures.

Variety reports that John Krasinski is in talks to take on one of the lead roles in the Paramount Pictures film, which recounts the 2012 attack on the U.S. Special Mission Compound in Benghazi, Libya.

“The Strain” author Chuck Hogan has penned the script for the film which looks into the September 11th 2012 militant attack on the U.S. State Department Special Mission Compound in the Libyan city which left U.S. Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens and three others dead.

The focus will be on six members of a security team that fought to defend the many Americans stationed there, so I guess we could maybe envelope this into action thriller.  But please for the love of  all goodness, hold the damned camera steady…
