Chicago – The story goes that when deciding on the project, director Peter Berg read a copy of Marcus Luttrell’s book “Lone Survivor” in one sitting. Whether this tale includes a bathroom break, or even a few days in-between but with usage of the same chair, for a director like Berg this story will always ring possible.
After all, he’s the guy who tried to legitimize Hasbro’s movie militarization, by pitting real American veterans against goofy strategy aliens in “Battleship.” Even in that disaster, his efforts were inspired, and valiant.
I’ve rattled on about Berg because his voice is so crucial to how well Luttrell’s true story has transitioned into the experience of watching a film, and feeling something from one. This isn’t just a drama about soldiers stuck behind enemy lines, but the limits these men pushed for themselves and each other. Berg »
