Tom Hardy & Channing Tatum Enlist for Universal’s Untitled Ripped from the Headlines Afghanistan Evacuation Pic

By: John M Jerva

The movie doesn’t have a title but it’s got some serious star power behind it as Deadline is reporting that Tom Hardy and Channing Tatum are set to star in an untitled film about last August’s massive evacuation and rescue in Afghanistan. The movie is a ripped from the headlines film from a treatment by George Nolfi with Universal acquiring the rights.

Per Deadline: The story is based on recently reported true stories, this one focusing on three former special forces team members who jump back into the fray alongside their Afghan counterparts, to rescue families and allies left behind amid the rapid fall of Afghanistan last August.

Hardy and Tatum will most likely play two of the three spec ops soldiers who risk their lives for innocent civilians. The two stars will also produce the movie as well.

Hardy was last seen in Venom Let There Be Carnage and also has the Netflix thriller Havoc in post production which was helmed by The Raid’s Gareth Evans. “Havoc is set after a drug deal gone wrong, when a bruised detective must fight his way through a criminal underworld to rescue a politician’s estranged son, while unraveling a deep web of corruption and conspiracy that ensnares his entire city.” Tatum recently finished work on Lost City of D which has him starring with Sandra Bullock, Brad Pitt, and Daniel Radcliffe. That film is about “a reclusive romance novelist who is on a book tour with her cover model when they get swept up in a kidnapping attempt that lands them both in a cutthroat jungle adventure.”
