Shock and Awe (2017)

The politically charged SHOCK AND AWE centres on a group of journalists who asked the tough questions about Saddam Hussein’s alleged weapons of mass destruction, the official reason given by the Bush administration for the invasion of Iraq. As last week’s devastating Chilcott Report in the UK revealed, however, there were huge intelligence failures on behalf of both the U.S. and UK governments when selling the proposition of the necessity of war to their respective publics in 2003.

Directed by the legendary Rob Reiner the film was penned by Joey Hartstone. James Marsden, Milla Jovovich, Jessica Biel, Woody Harrelson and Tommy Lee Jones star in the film.

The film, which Reiner has had in development for several years, is scheduled for production this year, with financing from Savvy Media Holdings and Acacia Filmed Entertainment, as well as The Fyzz Facility.
