The divisive filmmaker is taking a break from the Transformers franchise for 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi, a real-life story which deals with far more serious fare than fighting robots. Never fear though, as it looks like there will still be plenty of great action.
13 Hours is based on Mitchell Zuckoff’s book Thirteen Hours: A Firsthand Account of What Really Happened in Benghazi, and focuses on the real life attack on the US State Department Special Mission Compound in Benghazi on September 11th, 2012. The Michael Bay helmed movie is set to focus on the six members of a security team who bravely attempted to fight off the terrorists off when the facility was attacked. This team were all that stood between the terrorists and the Americans stationed there, though there were still a number of casualties (including a US Ambassador) despite their valiant efforts to hold them off.
The cast of 13 Hours includes John Krasinski, James Badge Dale, Max Martini, Pablo Schreiber, and David Denman, and it’s currently set to be released next January.
