Eastwood salutes ‘Flags’ troops

Phillippe, Bradford set for Bradley adaptation

Ryan Phillippe, Jesse Bradford and Adam Beach are set to star in Clint Eastwood’s next project, “Flags of Our Fathers,” which Eastwood is directing and producing with Steven Spielberg.

DreamWorks-Warner Bros. co-production is based on the book “Flags of Our Fathers: Heroes of Iwo Jima,” by James Bradley with Ron Powers. Shooting is scheduled for August.

Story is told from the point of view of Bradley, whose father was one of the six soldiers who raised the American flag at the battle of Iwo Jima. It was only after the elder James’ death in 1994 that his son learned the full extent of his father’s heroism.

Eastwood is directing the film from a screenplay by Paul Haggis, with whom the helmer teamed on last year’s “Million Dollar Baby.” Robert Lorenz is exec producing.

DreamWorks will handle domestic distribution, with Warners taking overseas rights.

Pic is the second collaboration between Eastwood and Spielberg: The two teamed up on “The Bridges of Madison County” in 1995. Eastwood directed that film, and Spielberg produced via his production company Amblin.
