Bruce Willis and Channing Tatum Highlighting Pinkville
Both popular actors of their generations, Bruce Willis and Channing Tatum will team up together as the stars of "Pinkville", a Vietnam War drama renowned filmmaker Oliver Stone is set to direct based on Mikko Alanne's script for MGM to distribute.
Stone reportedly is now closing a deal with United Artist to finance the project that could be finalized this week and so will put the picture into production by early next year, with a budget of roughly $40 million. Pic marks the fourth time the man has worked on a big screen feature set against the backdrop of the Vietnam War after "Platoon", "Heaven & Earth", and "Born on the Fourth of July."
Here Willis is billed to play Army Gen. William R. Peers, who supervised the investigation into the massacre by U.S. soldiers of as many as 500 My Lai villagers, most of them unarmed women, children and elderly. Meanwhile, Tatum will portray Hugh Thompson, a helicopter pilot who airlifted the survivors of the killing and reported the carnage to superiors.
