‘Remember the Titans’ Scribe to Pen World War II Drama ‘Night Witches’ (EXCLUSIVE)

Gregory Allen Howard will write for Boris Yeltsin's Timedale Entertainment Shingle

Gregory Allen Howard is set to pen the World War II drama “Night Witches” for Boris Yeltsin’s Timedale Entertainment banner.

Yeltsin, the grandson of the former Russian president, has become very active in the Hollywood scene. He’s produced several features and will produce this pic along with his Timedale Entertainment partner, D. Matt Geller.

Film will be based on the true story of the female flying unit that fought in the Battle of Moscow. They were dubbed “Night Witches” by the frightened German soldiers because of the deadly stealth of their light planes.

“I’m in the inspiration business and this is, by far, one of the most inspirational, heroic stories I’ve ever come across. I’m honored to be to be a part of it,” Yeltsin said. “I am really excited to move forward on this project. We have an opportunity to tell a great human interest story and give these WWII heroes the credit they deserve.”

Howard has made a name for himself with his fact-based films like “Remember the Titans” and “Ali.” He recently finished the script “Better Angels,” which Forest Whitaker will direct and star in, involving an interracial love story set against the Uganda Civil War.

Howard also recently wrote the Miami crime pilot “Brothers Ivanov,” that his reps at WME and Gotham Group are currently shopping, as well as “Knockout,” which is being produced by Jerry Bruckheimer.

Yeltsin and Geller along with financier Jake Seal are also producing the indie thriller “Flirting With Fear” with Ekaterina Sheyno on board to direct. Yeltsin and Geller are repped by attorney Robert Abramoff.
