Clint Eastwood's next directorial project will once again be a movie based on real events. According to Variety, the Hollywood veteran intends to movie the story of the abduction and release of Jessica Buchanan and Paul Hagen, who worked in a humanitarian mission in Somalia.
Militants who attacked the headquarters of a mission to help Somali children kidnapped Buchanan and her colleague from Denmark in 2011 and demanded a ransom in excess of $ 1.5 million. The hostages were held captive for 93 days and were released in January 2012 following a successful military operation by the US Navy SEALs. All invaders were killed.
The movie will be based on Jessica Buchan's autobiography "Impossible Odds". Warner Bros. Studios, with which Eastwood has previously collaborated, agreed to fund his new project. The terms of work and a possible rental schedule at the time of this writing were not specified.
Recall that in 2016, Eastwood's drama "Miracle on the Hudson" was released, which tells about an aviation accident that ended with a passenger liner landing on the surface of the Hudson River. The picture earned more than $ 160 million at the box office.
