Tom Hardy To Star In Navy SEAL Film For Netflix

Netflix has made a seven-figure deal to acquire a pitch from Andrew Dominik and Harrison Query.

Titled War Party, the movie has Tom Hardy set to star with Dominik, who directed Brad Pitt in The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford, directing.

Dominik will co-write the project with Query, an up and coming writer who last year sold a pitch based on the true exorcism that took place at a military base to Lionsgate, and Honor for Sale, a 1970s crime thriller based on true events with John Hillcoat attached to direct.

Plot details are being kept under wraps, but the film is based on real events and centers on real SEALS. Life rights were included in the deal.

According to reports, bidding for the project was fierce but the Netflix managed to outbid Amazon, Universal, Lionsgate, among others.

Ridley Scott's Scott Free Film, which is producing Hardy's FX series Taboo, will produce War Party. Taboo was recently picked up for a second season.
