Clint salutes ‘Flags’ troops

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. The 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. The 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 director teamed on last year’s “Million Dollar Baby.”
