The Operators is a non-fiction novel from author Michael Hastings, which follows the real-life story of General Stanley McChrystal, who lead U.S. forces in Afghanistan during the War on Terror. Hastings traveled to Afghanistan in the spring of 2010 and published an article in Rolling Stone based on his observations of McChrystal and his staff relaxing and openly criticizing Obama and his administration, which lead to McChrystal’s dismissal from duty. Hastings published the book The Operators in 2012 and now that novel will be the inspiration for a new movie from director David Michod, and Brad Pitt may be aiming to star in the project. Dede Gardner and Jeremy Kleiner will be producing the film under Pitt’s production company, Plan B, which will also receive assistance from New Regency Productions and RatPac Entertainment to finance the project. The movie is still early in pre-production so we’ll have to wait for more news. Stay tuned.
