Thanks! I'd never heard that there was a documentary about it. And no doubt the movie will be epic! I agree with what they say on that site, this is about "the battle over the very survival of centuries of western culture".

After having read some comments regarding expectations for this one, I was wondering, what do you expect it to be?

I watched the documentary and the writers really have to be very creative with what really happened to get a proper/interesting movie story our of it and not make it a bit too (old) Indiana Jonesy or some such thing...

I guess I'm expecting/fearing another Defiance - i.e. an ok movie but nothing really amazing.

In a way, Oceans eleven based in another time.

They go search for the various men, who can do the job, find them, make plans and off they go. You can pep it up with serious undertones regarding the war and you might ave an interesting film.

I guess I am in the Rat Pack area where it was Frank Santra, Peter Lawford, Sammy Davis Jr. Dean Martin, Richard Conti. and the likes planning a robbery of 3 casino's. Don't see where they were archiving something. It was make believe.
Thanks, I guess the George Clooney Brad Pitt verison was achiving the orgional movie.
Here I go again, cracking myself up :rotfl:

Thanks C, yes, that's what I meant. Clooney pack or rat pack - it will be a group of characters, I hope, that will be fun to watch. Excited about John Goodman. Love him.

I think Daniel will play Major Ronald Edmund Balfour, age 40.
He appears very thin and sports a mustache.
If Clooney is in it as well as heading up with project I think he will play Lieutenant George Stout, age 47, yes a mustache as well.
John Goodman could be Second Lieutenant James Rorimer age 39.
If this comes together it could be pretty amazing.
