Christopher McQuarrie is following up his writing work in "Valkyrie" with that for WWI drama "No Man's Land."
Seems to have no space to take a break in writing scripts, Christopher McQuarrie has directly moved from his stint in "Valkyrie" to pen for a WWI drama entitled "No Man's Land", Variety has reported.
Set up as a co-production between 2929 Productions and Spitfire Pictures, the battlefield drama revolves around three characters consisting of an American ambulance driver living in France, a British soldier wrongly accused of cowardice, and a German soldier mired in the trenches.
Pic is said to use these three to illustrate the complex reasons why the various European powers chose sides to fight WWI as well as to point out how the use of machine guns, tanks, and other technology led to unimaginable carnage.
Onboard to produce are Spitfire's Nigel Sinclair and Guy East with 2929 Entertainment partners Todd Wagner and Mark Cuban both financing. The latter two will also seat as the executive producers alongside Marc Butan.
