United Artists near deal for ‘Pinkville’

Oliver Stone is heading back to Vietnam. The director is closing a deal with United Artists to finance “Pinkville,” a drama about the investigation of the 1968 My Lai massacre. Film would be distributed through MGM. Bruce Willis and Channing Tatum will star. Mikko Alanne wrote the script. Willis will play Army Gen. William R. Peers, who supervised the investigation into the massacre by U.S. soldiers of as many as 500 My Lai villagers, most of them unarmed women, children and elderly. Tatum will play Hugh Thompson, a helicopter pilot who, upon realizing what was happening below, put a stop to the killing by placing his craft between gunmen and the few villagers who were left, and telling his two shipmates to fire on the soldiers if they shot any more people. They airlifted the survivors and reported the carnage to superiors. Pinkville is the description on a military map for the region where My Lai is.
