Blockbuster movie director Michael Bay is scheduled to release a film based on true life events which occurred in Benghazi, Libya in 2012. The plot for the new film centres around the terrorist attacks which took place on a U.S embassy and how a group of U.S Navy Seals must do everything they can to protect the U.S ambassador from any potential harm.
The release of this new film could be seen by many critics as controversial and insensitive especially because it is intentionally glorifying an event which still to this day remains a tragedy. The cast for the new film includes a long list of actors such as James Badge Dale, John Krasinski, Max Martini, Toby Stephens, David Denman and Freddie Stroma.
Filming began on April 27, 2015 and on June 30, 2015 Paramount Pictures announced the film would be released on January 15, 2016 during the Martin Luther King holiday in the U.S with the title 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi.
