Take That Taliban! Bruckheimer Sending Horses After Terrorists

Bruckheimer is taking on the Taliban!! Jerry Bruckheimer is teaming with Disney to take on an adaptation of Horse Soliders, an upcoming novel by Doug Stanton about a group of elite special forces and CIA operatives who went into Afghanistan on horseback and aided fighters in the country in capturing Mazar-i-Sharif and beating the Taliban.

Flag-waving jingoism isn’t really the order of the day at present so I’ll be interested to see how Bruckheimer guides the project and whether this will subscribe to that kind of ideological sentiment or if this will work hard to show the kind of difficulties and horrors faced by foriegn soldiers in the Middle East. I think I can probably guess which one will win out.
