Eric Bana Signs on for ‘The Lone Survivor’

Eric Bana (Hanna) just signed on to star alongside Mark Wahlberg (Ted), Ben Foster (The Mechanic), Emile Hirsh (The Darkest Hour) and Taylor Kitsch (Savages) in Peter Berg’s upcoming film, Lone Survivor.  The film is adapted from a true story by former SEAL, Marcus Luttrell who in 2005 led a SEAL team in a covert mission to kill a high-ranking leader close to Osama Bin Linden.  The team came under attack by Taliban forces in the Hindu Kush region of Afghanistan.

Peter Berg was the director of this summer’s flop Battleship.  He inked a deal with Universal where he was able to do one movie for them and  one movie for him.  That’s probably why he is still able to get another project off the ground after an $80 million dollar loss for the studio.

I can see Eric Bana, Mark Wahlberg, Taylor Kitsch and Ben Foster as Navy SEALS but Emile Hirsch as one of the Navy’s best.  That’s a hard sell.

I’ve been an entertainment junkie since I was born. There are so many outlets out there that provides entertainment news but the content was never enough to satisfy my appetite for more in-depth coverage.
