Disney sets terrorist tale

Disney and producer Jerry Bruckheimer have acquired screen rights to “Jihadists in Paradise,” a Mark Bowden article published in the March issue of Atlantic Monthly. “Jihadists in Paradise” details the emergence in the Philippines of the Islamic terrorist faction Abu Sayyaf and one of its leaders, Aldam Tilao. Tilao put his group on the map by sneaking by boat into a diving resort and taking 20 hostages, including three Americans. He and his armed thugs beheaded one of the Americans and dragged the other two — a missionary couple — across the jungles for a year and a half. Tilao was eventually tracked down and killed after a long search by the CIA and Filipino military forces.
