Woody Harrelson and Oliver Stone are re-teaming for the director’s Vietnam War drama “Pinkville” for United Artists & MGM Pictures says The Hollywood Reporter.
Harrelson joins Bruce Willis and Channing Tatum, who already have been cast in the mystery drama based on the infamous 1968 My Lai Massacre, in which upward of 500 people — mostly women, children and the elderly — were killed by U.S. soldiers. The massacre ended up being a turning point in the war.
Harrelson will play Col. Henderson, the conflicted officer in charge of the task force that committed the massacre. Willis will portray William R. Peers, the real-life Army general who investigated the incident.
Tatum will play Hugh Thompson Jr., an Army helicopter pilot who aided the villagers and later testified against the soldiers. Michael Pena is also onboard, whilst Mikko Alanne wrote the script.
