The film is based on the Michael Hastings book and centers on Gen. Stanley McChrystal, the commanding general of international and U.S. forces in Afghanistan, portraying the backrooms and politics behind the war that shook the country.
The project is also backed by New Regency and RatPac Entertainment, which also made a successful producing partnership with Pitt's Plan B last year after Regency teamed with Plan B for the Oscar winning Best Picture '12 Years A Slave'.
