...George Clooney, Ewan McGregor, Kevin Spacey, and Jeff Bridges. What amazing cast they were able to gather together for this film! If you have not heard about 'The Men Who Stare at Goats' it's somthing you should look into. This movie has the potential to be incredible and mind blowing story wise. The movie is being produced by Clooney and directed by Grant Heslov. THR reports:
Based on the book by the Guardian columnist Jon Ronson, "Goats" is set in Iraq and centers on Bob Wilton (McGregor), a desperate reporter who stumbles upon the story of a lifetime when he meets Lyn Cassady (Clooney), who claims to be a former secret U.S. military psychic soldier who was re¬activated post-9/11.
"Goats" chronicles the two men's travels through Iraq and offers glimpses into the supposedly real secret Army unit tasked with creating soldiers with paranormal powers.
Bridges will play Bill Django, the founder of the psychic soldier program and Lyn's mentor. Spacey will play Larry Hooper, a former psychic soldier who is running a prison camp in Iraq.
Clooney and Heslov's Smoke House and BBC Films are co-producing the feature, which is eyeing an early October production start date.
Apparently this is based on actual events, which makes this so mind blowing. I found the following Interview on youtube with a man who claims to have been one of these psychic soldier's. is this for real or is the guy a nut? Check it out if you want.
