Did You Know?


Writer Yasmin Naficy first dreamed about this dramatic story, The Rogue, in 1999. Her dream was about CIA officers operating in Afghanistan, tracking a terror leader.. She wrote a short story then picked it back up years later after 9/11 hit her home town of D.C., and a tape surfaced overseas.

She spent years revising and rewriting the script adding some reality into this moving war drama/political thriller's plot, while carefully building in pivotal moments around real events. This is also driven by her personal experience in the region as a consultant.

Many successful movies - using the backdrop of past real wars - are partially fictional dramas centered around the Vietnam era and the Gulf War, such as Apocalypse Now, The Three Kings, Manchurian Candidate, and others. See more »
