Lone Survivor is a film production that has stayed relatively off mainstream media channels at the moment while Zero Dark Thirty takes much more attention.

Lone Survivor is based on Marcus Luttrell’s best selling book about a group of SEAL operators ambushed in Afghanistan by the Taliban in 2005. Luttrell being the only survivor that made it out alive. The film adaptation of the novel has cast Luttrell as Mark Wahlberg.

Other cast members will include Taylor Kitsch as Lt. Michael Murphy; Ben Foster as Matt Axelson and Emile Hirsch will take on the role of Danny Dietz.

Film Synopsis:

Four US Navy SEALS departed one clear night in early July 2005 for the mountainous Afghanistan-Pakistan border for a reconnaissance mission. Their task was to document the activity of an al Qaeda leader rumored to be very close to Bin Laden with a small army in a Taliban stronghold. Five days later, only one of those Navy SEALS made it out alive.

This is the story of the only survivor of Operation Redwing, SEAL fire team leader Marcus Luttrell, and the extraordinary firefight that led to the largest loss of life in American Navy SEAL history. His squadmates fought valiantly beside him until he was the only one left alive, blasted by an RPG into a place where his pursuers could not find him. Over the next four days, terribly injured and presumed dead, Luttrell crawled for miles through the mountains and was taken in by sympathetic villagers who risked their lives to keep him safe from surrounding Taliban warriors.

A born and raised Texan, Marcus Luttrell takes us from the rigors of SEAL training, where he and his fellow SEALs discovered what it took to join the most elite of the American special forces, to a fight in the desolate hills of Afghanistan for which they never could have been prepared. His account of his squadmates’ heroism and mutual support renders an experience that is both heartrending and life-affirming. In this rich chronicle of courage and sacrifice, honor and patriotism, Marcus Luttrell delivers a powerful narrative of modern war.
