Scott Free and Principato-Young are developing a film adaptation of battlefield doctor Rich Jadick’s memoir “On Call In Hell”.
The book tracks Jadick’s days as a marine officer and surgeon in Fallujah, risking his life trying to triage and rush gravely wounded American soldiers to safety before they bled out.
In the process he disobeyed orders and put his own survival at risk. He was the first doctor in the armed forces ever to be awarded the bronze star for valor in combat for his work in Iraq.
Andrew Stern (“Disconnect”) developed the feature script which producer Allen Fischer. Fischer, Ridley Scott and Michael Schaefer will produce. Scott will not direct but will help in securing a helmer.
