Super producer Jerry Bruckheimer, the man behind films like Black Hawk Down, Top Gun, and the hit reality series The Amazing Race, has partnered with Disney to adapt Killing Rommel, a novel by Steven Pressfield. The book is about a British battalion and its attempt to disrupt a North African desert campaign by German field marshal Erwin Rommel. Rommel used Panzer tanks to overtake the British in the desert in 1942.
Bruckheimer will produce the film from a script written by Randall Wallace, who specializes in battlefield films, having written Braveheart and Pearl Harbor. Pressfield will also work on the script.
