A Private War to film London and Jordan
A forthcoming feature starring Rosamund Pike as celebrated frontline war correspondent Marie Colvin is setting up to film in London and Jordan in November.
A Private War comes from Charlize Theron’s Denver and Delilah Productions and Basil Iwanyk’s Thunder Road Pictures; the pair produce alongside Marissa McMahon.
Matthew Heineman directs from a screenplay by Arash Amel which is based on a 2012 Vanity Fair article by Marie Brenner.
Colvin worked for The Sunday Times from 1985 until her death in 2012 in Homs, Syria. She won many awards for her work and became the first journalist to interview Colonel Gaddafi after the American bombing of Libya in 1986.
Colvin became synonymous with the eye patch she wore after she lost the sight in her left eye during a Sri Lankan army rocket-propelled grenade explosion in 2001.
