Lone Survivor: Marcus Luttrell on Operation Redwing, eight years later
posted at 6:01 pm on December 9, 2013 by Erika Johnsen

As I mentioned back in August, I was pumped when I first learned that Hollywood was basing a film off of Lone Survivor: The Eyewitness Account of Operation Redwing and the Lost Heroes of Seal Team 10, the mind-blowing biography by retired Navy SEAL Marcus Luttrell, but simultaneously very wary, because — well, it’s Hollywood. It’s a story that undoubtedly deserves to be retold again and again, especially to a wider movie-going audience, but the book was far too moving, intense, and worthy a play-by-play of extraordinary valor and all-American badassery to risk any political perversions. “60 Minutes” had a few of the answers to some of my reservations during their special on Luttrell’s experiences and the upcoming movie last night, and I have to say, my hopes for an all-around in-good-faith adaptation are getting stronger.

Here’s another trailer for the movie, which comes out this January:
