Eric Bana is the latest big gun to be joining Pete Berg's Lone Survivor. According to THR, Bana is in negotiations to join Mark Wahlberg and Ben Foster in the drama-action that chronicles Afghanistan war hero Marcus Luttrell's account of a Navy SEAL mission gone bad. Berg, who began developing Lone Survivor five years ago when Universal bought the book and life rights for $2 million against $3 million, has put together an impressive cast that also includes Emile Hirsch and Taylor Kitsch. Principal photography is scheduled to begin next month in New Mexico.
Lone Survivor recounts how Luttrell and three other SEALs were on a reconnaissance mission near the Afghanistan-Pakistan border in 2005. They came across an old man and three boys, and while knowing that it could jeopardize their lives, the commandos let the group pass. The act of mercy backfired, and soon the team was under attack by a small Taliban army.
Luttrell was the only one who survived. A later firefight led to the largest loss of life in SEAL history. Bana will play a SEAL lieutenant. Berg, who wrote the screenplay, is producing alongside Sarah Aubrey and Akiva Goldsman.
