Synopsis

12 Strong tells the story of the first Special Forces team deployed to Afghanistan after 9/11; under the leadership of a new captain, the team must work with an Afghan warlord to take down the Taliban.

This film is based on a true story, using Doug Stanton's book, Horse Soldiers, as its primary source of inspiration. 12 Strong has been in development for quite some time, with the script first bought by Walt Disney Pictures for producer Jerry Bruckheimer in 2009. The project eventually moved homes to Warner Bros. and started to pick up steam in 2016 when director Nicolai Fuglsig came on board. Fuglsig is making his feature film debut with the picture. Principal photography started in January 2017.
