Sand Rewrites WW2 Black Soldiers Tale

Matthew Sand (“Ninja Assassin,” “The Red Star”) is set to rewrite the WW2 drama “Brothers in Arms” for Alcon Entertainment says The Hollywood Reporter.

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Anthony Walton penned the non-fiction book about the only black U.S. tank unit to fight in Europe during the Second World War.

The unit overcame prejudice and sought to prove themselves on the battlefield by spearheading the Allied Forces’ drive eastward toward Germany during the Battle of the Bulge and liberating nearly three dozen towns along the way

Denzel Washington is attached to direct as well as produce alongside Broderick Johnson and Andrew Kosove. David Chisholm and John Sayles wrote previous drafts.
