LONE SURVIVOR is an upcoming action drama war film written and directed by Peter Berg (Friday Night Lights, The Kingdom, Hancock, Battleship), based on the real events and book Lone Survivor: The Eyewitness Account of Operation Redwing and the Lost Heroes of SEAL Team 10 by Marcus Luttrell. It stars Mark Wahlberg, Taylor Kitsch, Emile Hirsch, Ben Foster and Eric Bana.
Four US Navy SEALS (Wahlberg, Kitsch, Hirsch, Foster) departed one clear night in early July, 2005 for the mountainous Afghanistan-Pakistan border for a reconnaissance mission. Their task was to document the activity of an al Qaeda leader rumored to be very close to Bin Laden with a small army in a Taliban stronghold. Five days later, only one of those Navy SEALS made it out alive.
