12 Strong is an upcoming American war drama film directed by Nicolai Fuglsig and written by Ted Tally and Peter Craig. Principal photography began in early-January 2017 in New Mexico.On March 29, 2016, Deadline reported that Bruckheimer had officially hired Fuglsig to make his feature film directorial debut, which would be co-financed and produced by Molly Smith, Trent Luckinbill and Thad Luckinbill through Black Label Media, along with Bruckheimer’s Jerry Bruckheimer Films. The film is set to be released in the United States on January 19, 2018 in standard and IMAX theaters.
The film follows a team led by Captain Mitch Nelson and his comrades as they enter into Afghanistan to tackle an enemy which they know nothing about.
Michael Shannon plays the chief warrant officer. Michael Pena is a sergeant who gets laughs when forced to ride a horse through mountainous terrain. Authenticity was in making “12 Strong“. Several veterans of the mission and an ex-Navy SEAL were on set.
The team is called Task Force Dagger and the key to their mission is not their overwhelming firepower. But joining forces to form a tenuous alliance with Dostum, to conduct unconventional warfare against Taliban forces. This is one of Hemsworth’s best performances, and it comes in a film that shows the American soldiers. And their Afghan allies as undeniable heroes and brothers in arms.
