‘Liberty’ bell rings

Cooper, Baldwin on escape mission for FX

FX has teamed with “Medical Investigation” exec producer Robert Cooper and thesp William Baldwin on original movie “The Liberty.”

Cooper and Baldwin will exec produce the movie, based on the true story of a U.S. special forces vet who escaped wrongful imprisonment in Brazil via the Amazon. “Miracle” scribe Eric Guggenheim will pen the project, in which Baldwin is attached to star.

Steve Whitney and Andrew Trapani of Integrated Films and Management packaged the project and will serve as co-exec producers along with Gregg Goldman of Landscape and Dan Gagliasso. Fox Television Studios will produce.

FX senior VP of movies Gerard Boccacio is overseeing the project.

Movie will follow the real story of Tim Carmody and the six American veterans who were recruited by a former special forces commander to escort weapons bound for pro-U.S. rebels in Ghana. Within a month, they found themselves betrayed, deserted and left to die in a Third World prison.

UTA-repped Baldwin last starred in Sundance pic “The Squid and the Whale” alongside Laura Linney and Jeff Daniels.
