Michael Bay to make up for PEARL HARBOR with SABOTAGE!?!
Hey Yo, Draven here.
Michael Bay is looking to WWII again for creative inspiration as The Wrap is reporting that he has signed on to at least produce and possibly direct an adaptation of the book proposal, SABOTAGE. Paramount recently acquired the rights to the story from author, Neal Bascomb. The Wrap describes the story like as this:
"Set in 1942, the story follows a brilliant scientist who flees the Gestapo to inform the Allies that the Nazis are secretly developing a nuclear program at an industrial fortress called Vermork deep in the mountainous expanse of Norway’s Telemark region. Knowing that Hitler gaining nuclear capabilities would be unthinkably catastrophic, the Allies assemble a fearless team of nine Norwegian refugee commandos to infiltrate the Nazi-occupied country. In an apparent suicide mission, this team must brave the arctic landscape and pull off an impossibly daring assault on Vermork, which sits perched on impenetrable, icy cliffs. With little more than parachutes, skis, tommy guns, and explosives, the team is the Allies’ only hope to halt Hitler’s nuclear ambitions, and their adventure is one of WWII most thrilling, action-packed tales."
It sounds like it could make for a pretty exciting film. I just don’t know if I can really get excited for another Michael Bay WWII project after the atrocity that was PEARL HARBOR. It is early though and we will see if he actually signs on to direct and what kind of cast and writers they can put together for this. In the meantime if you are really interested in this story, here is a 1973 BBC documentary:
