“War Machine,” a satirical comedy inspired by a book called “The Operators: The Wild and Terrifying Inside Story of America’s War in Afghanistan,” by Michael Hastings, focuses on a general who becomes a commander in the war. The movie will explore the “impossible” war by looking at the media, politics, and the management of the war.
“War Machine” comes from write and director David Michôd, and it is produced by Netflix, Pitt, and Plan B’s Dede Gardner and Jeremy Kleiner along with Ian Bryce.
“’War Machine’ is a rip-roaring, behind-the-facade tale of modern war decision-makers, from the corridors of power to the distant regions of America’s ambitions,” said Netflix Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos. “Brad and David are a perfect team to make this timely, compelling, and entertaining film.”
“War Machine” will have a day-and-date release in all of Netflix’s territories and select theaters in 2016.
