Navy SEALs are all the rage in Hollywood right now.  So we should see many movie about them over the next couple of years.

Deadline reports director Peter Berg (Hancock, The Kingdom) will be at the helm of Lone Survivor, an adaptation of Marcus Luttrell’s book of the same name

The film will reunite Berg with Taylor Kitsch (X-Men Origins: Wolverine), the star of his forthcoming board game adaptation Battleship (the film that Universal Pictures convinced Berg to direct in exchange for making Lone Survivor at a later date). The actor will be playing one of four Navy SEALS in the story about Luttrell and his team who fought to stay alive after being ambushed in Afghanistan in 2005 by Taliban forces during a covert mission in the Hindu Kush mountain region, where the team went to kill a terrorist leader.
