Ben Affleck intends to return to directing and shoot a movie dedicated to one of the dramatic episodes of the war in Afghanistan. According to The Tracking Board, this is about the battle of US troops with the Taliban in Kamdesh, which took place on October 3, 2009.
Then about 300 militants attacked an American outpost on the border of Afghanistan and Pakistan. The main hero of the battle was Sergeant Ramesh, under whose command the US military not only organized an effective defense, but also carried out a counterattack that forced the militants to retreat. He was later awarded the US Congress Medal.
Ben Affleck's brother Casey is expected to star in the movie. This information has not yet been officially confirmed.
We remind you that that at the time of this writing, Ben Affleck's directorial experiment, The Law of the Night, failed at the box office, earning only $ 22 million worldwide. He has previously addressed the Middle East in Operation Argo, which tells the story of the operation to free American hostages in Iran. This movie was successful at the box office and was nominated for many prestigious awards, including an Academy Award.
