Matt Cook (“999,” “By Way of Helena”) is set to write and direct the Vietnam War drama “Matterhorn” at Thunder Road Pictures. Basil Iwanyk will produce.
Highly decorated veteran Karl Marlantes spent thirty years penning the book on which the project is based.
The story is set in Vietnam in 1969 at a fire-support base located between Laos and the DMZ. The key characters are a recent college graduate and second lieutenant along with his teenage colleagues.
