A new featurette has just dropped for the true life military thriller The Outpost which stars Orlando Bloom (The Lord Of The Rings) and Scott Eastwood (The Fate Of The Furious).
The Outpost tells the true life story of a small group of American soldiers who valiantly defended Outpost Keating when it came under heavy attack from hundreds of Taliban forces in Afghanistan.
Rod Lurie helms from a script penned by Eric Johnson, and Paul Tamasy. The film is based on the book written by Jake Tapper titled The Outpost: An Untold Story of American Valor.
The new featurette delves into the story and the small but fierce men who stood against many. It also talks about how Lurie, who is an Army veteran himself, used real life soldiers including some who were actually part of this fierce firefight.
One aspect I love is that they used the gimmick of the “oner” where the battle is shot in one continuous motion with no edits.
Also starring are Caleb Landry Jones, Jacob Scipio, Jack Kesy, Cory Hardict and Mel Gibson’s son Milo who was awesome in the Black Ops thriller All The Devil’s Men.
Release info is pending so keep it locked and loaded right here for more 411 including trailer and first footage announcements. Take a look at the new featurette below courtesy of Millennium Films!
