10/25/11 - Screen Daily reports Gerry to "Thunder Run" - Thunder Run: The Armored Strike to Capture Baghdad

The film, which will be an all-CG, 3-D effort, is based on David Zucchino's novel "Thunder Run - The Armored Strike to Capture Baghdad," which chronicled the taking of Baghdad by American military forces in 2003. Ken Nolan, the screenwriter for "Black Hawk Down," and Robert Port are adapting.

"Thunder Run" will employ the same motion-capture technology as used in "Avatar," and a proprietary facial-capture technology that the Graphic Film Company is using in the upcoming "Night of the Living Dead: Origins 3-D" -- which, like "Thunder Run," is directed by Simon West.

"We are very excited to have attracted this outstanding level of acting and writing talent. 'Thunder Run' will be the first ever conventional war film made to utilize this revolutionary facial and motion capture technology and state of the art CG and 3D," Presley said. "Simon and I have developed this project over the last five years so it will be nice to see it come alive." Source

Based on the novel by Pulitzer Prize-winning correspondent David Zucchino, THUNDER RUN is the untold story of the dangerous and bloody capture of Baghdad by American forces. In April 2003, three battalions and fewer than a thousand men launched a violent thrust of tanks and Bradley Fighting Vehicles into the heart of a city of five million, igniting a three-day blitzkrieg, which military professionals often refer to as a lightning strike, or "thunder run." In telling the story of the surprise assault on Baghdad- one of the most decisive battles in recent American combat history- this movie paints the harrowing picture of the soldiers on the front lines and the realities of modern warfare.
