Eastwood Drafts Three Soldiers for "Flag" Duty

by | July 7, 2005 | Comments

Legendary filmmaker Clint Eastwood ("The Outlaw Josey Wales," "Million Dollar Baby") has just started casting his next project, which is a WWII drama entitled "Flags of Our Fathers." Recently enlisted were Ryan Phillippe ("Antitrust"), Adam Beach ("Windtalkers"), and Jesse Bradford ("Swimfan"), and the trio will be starring in a film inspired by the true-life accounts found in James Bradley’s "Flags of Our Fathers: Heroes of Iwo Jima."

Mr. Eastwood will be working alongside producer Steven Spielberg to bring this epic tale to the screen; Bradley’s book was adapted into screenplay form by celebrated scribe Paul Haggis ("Crash").

"Flags of Our Fathers" begins production next month, with location shooting in Chicago, Los Angeles, Washington D.C., and Iceland.
