Phil Noyce To Direct “The Devil’s Brigade”

Phillip Noyce (“Clear and Present Danger,” “The Quiet American”) has been set to direct the World War II action-thriller “The Devil’s Brigade” for Foresight Unlimited.

The true story tale follows Davie Berman, the only Jewish member of the Luciano mob who is requested by the U.S. military to help turn the tide of events against the Germans in Italy.

Organising a team of Sicilian Cosa Nostra to work with the Americans, he almost single-handedly drives the Germans out of the southern region of Italy.

Casting is currently underway and shooting is set to begin at the end of this year in France and Moshe Diamant will produce.
