Sony To Adapt War Memoir “Red Platoon”

Sony Pictures has optioned Clinton Romesha’s memoir “Red Platoon: A True Story of American Valor” with Josh Bratman to produce through his Immersive Pictures banner.

The memoir follows the story of the Battle for Outpost Keating in October 2009, one of the bloodiest battles for U.S. forces during the War in Afghanistan.

More than 300 Taliban fighters launched a predawn raid on a remote and controversial American outpost near the Afghan-Pakistani border, overrunning its perimeter defenses.

A U.S. staff sergeant planned and led a small band of soldiers in a counterattack against seemingly insurmountable odds – saving dozens of American lives.
