Now that Michael Bay is supposedly finished with the Transformers franchise, he's looking around for new projects to tackle. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Bay is in talks with Paramount Pictures to helm 13 Hours, a film about the 2012 attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya. Here's the plot breakdown:
Chuck Hogan wrote the script adapting the book, which details how on Sept. 11, 2012, terrorists attacked the U.S. State Department Special Mission Compound in Benghazi. The focus is on six members of a security team that valiantly fought to defend the many Americans stationed there. They only partially succeeded: Stevens and a foreign service worker were killed in one attack, and two contract workers were killed during a second assault on a CIA station nearby.
The script, based on Mitchell Zuckoff's book of the same name, was written by Chuck Hogan (The Town, The Strain).
