Michael Bay has reportedly has signed on to adapt the big screen version of Mitchell Zuckoff’s recently released novel, “13 Hours.”
The novel is officially described as follows:
“13 Hours” presents, for the first time ever, the true account of the events of September 11, 2012, when terrorists attacked the US State Department Special Mission Compound and a nearby CIA station called the Annex in Benghazi, Libya. A team of six American security operators fought to repel the attackers and protect the Americans stationed there. Those men went beyond the call of duty, performing extraordinary acts of courage and heroism, to avert tragedy on a much larger scale. This is their personal account, never before told, of what happened during the thirteen hours of that now-infamous attack.”
Chuck Hogan has already gotten to work and adapted the screenplay for the project. Erwin Stoff is producing the film for Paramount Pictures.
Currently, “13 Hours” is supposedly being made with a smaller budget than Bay’s previous films are known for. There is no word on when production will begin or who the studio is eyeing to star.
