Ben Affleck Adds Revolution Drama Bunker Hill To His Plate

Warner Bros. have spent an awful lot of money on the movie rights to the non-fiction book Bunker Hill: A City, A Siege, A Revolution by Nathaniel Philbrick. Deadline say the price tag was in the high six figure range with a high seven figure sum payable when the film actually happens.

The book is an account of how the battle of Bunker Hill sparked the American Revolution. If you don’t know, Bunker Hill is in Boston and so it follows, in basic movie math, that Warner Bros. plus Boston plus politically charged war movie equals Ben Affleck project. It would seem very unHollywood if they’d gone to anybody else.

Affleck has already set Chris Terrio, the writer of Argo, to work on developing a screenplay. The film might be a few years away yet, but I can only imagine it’s going to be a very “prestige” production. I’m also fairly confident it will be good, but we’ll see.
