There has been news this week that Warner Brothers and Team Downey are working together to produce the USS Indianapolis story for the BIG SCREEN!!! More info to come as the news unfolds!
Here are some of the links that I have come across:
As much as I want to see a feature film made about the ship and her crew it is unfortunate they purchased the rights to Hunter Scotts story. I hope they dont dishonor the men who served on board by making an 11 year olds school project, turn media frenzy the hero! No disrespect to Hunter, but the focus should always be about the men who died and survived this tragic story. Captain McVays story is also an important part of its history and should be told, but Hunters roll should be kept to a minimum. I dont know for sure but I if they purchased his story rights then that must mean he has been compensated for them, and to me that is just wrong, the compensation should go the survivors and their families. After all in the end it is their story not Hunters!
