In 2012, the film “Zero Dark Thirty” explored the ten year search for infamous terrorist and Al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden. Now, a new film will explore another true life search for bin Laden by one delusional American in director Larry Charles‘ “Army of One.“ The comedic true story is produced by Conde Nast Entertainment, Endgame Entertainment, and Kasbah-Film Tange, with distribution from TWC-Dimension and Anchor Bay Entertainment.
In the film, ex-con and unemployed handy man Gary Faulkner (Nicolas Cage) has a vision from God (Russell Brand) saying that he needs to go to Pakistan to find and kill bin Laden. Supported by his girlfriend Marci (Wendy McLendon-Covey), Gary sets off for Pakistan to hunt down bin Laden. Gary gets into loads of hi-jinx when attempting to track down bin Laden, while American forces within Pakistan scramble to stop Gary before he gets himself or anyone else hurt.
The comedy also stars Rainn Wilson, Ken Marino, Denis O’Hare, and Paul Sheer. Charles directed a script from Rajiv Joseph and Scott Rothman, and is produced by Emile Gladstone, Jeremy Steckler, and James D. Stern. “Army of One” comes out on November 4, 2016 for a limited theatrical release and Video-On-Demand.
