No director is attached to “Zero Footprint,” the third Benghazi project set up in Hollywood in recent months.
Relativity announced last month it had teamed with “Fifty Shades of Grey” producer Dana Brunetti for an untitled movie about two Americans who were killed during the 2012 terrorist attacks. The studio bought the life rights of CIA contractors Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty, the former U.S. Navy SEALs who rescued 30 Americans in the attacks at the CIA Annex in Benghazi.
Ambassador Christopher Stevens and U.S. Foreign Service information management officer Sean Smith had been killed a few hours earlier in a separate attack.
Michael Bay is attached to direct Benghazi thriller “13 Hours” with Paramount distributing. That project is based on Mitchell Zuckoff’s book “Thirteen Hours: A Firsthand Account of What Really Happened in Benghazi.” Pablo Schreiber and John Krasinski are starring, with Erwin Stoff producing through 3 Arts Entertainment.
Charnick is represented by Innovative Artists and Andy Galker at Jackoway, Tyerman. The Parlapanides brothers are represented by WME, Circle of Confusion and Jeff Frankel at McKuin, Frankel, Whitehead. Yorkin is represented by Innovative and Hirsch Wallerstein.
