Chris Kentis and Laura Lau Head to "Indianapolis"
Determined to get its film project "Indianapolis" come to the surface rather quickly, Warner Bros. Pictures has picked up director Chris Kentis and producer Laura Lau to team up together in developing the flick, an adaptation from Douglas Stanton's book "In Harm's Way."
As the film focuses on WWII's U.S.S. Indianapolis which got sunk by a Japanese sub, Kentis is assigned to provide a backstory on why the ship's distress signal went unheeded, how the survivors were spotted accidentally, and how the military made a scapegoat of the ship's commander Charles McVay III. Meanwhile Lau is set to produce alongside Mark Gordon, Akiva Goldsman, and Betsy Beers.
Warner Bros. turns out to be not the only one intending to make a film about the tragedy as Universal Pictures, along with writer Robert Nelson Jacobs, is also developing a big screen feature concerning the shocking research on McVay's case conducted by a school boy named Hunter Scott.
