Kieran Darcy-Smith To Direct “Blackwater”

Australian actor/filmmaker Kieran Darcy-Smith (“Wish You Were Here,” “Animal Kingdom”) is set to direct “Blackwater” for Warner Bros. Pictures.

The true story tale deals with the private military company which became an important part of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Specifically it deals with four former security guards turned private contractors currently on trial for a 2007 incident that left 14 Iraqi civilians dead and 18 others wounded.

Gideon Yago (“The Newsroom”) is writing the screenplay, whilst Jon Peters is producing.
