Weinstein Co. Developing Sniper Story for TV Miniseries

On the heels of the massive success of Warner Bros.' American Sniper, The Weinstein Co. has announced plans to develop another true-life sniper tale for a TV miniseries.

The company will adapt Nicholas Irving’s book The Reaper: Autobiography of One of the Deadliest Special Ops Snipers for a five-night TV series, with production set to begin in the summer of 2015. A network is not yet attached.

Special Operations Direct Action Sniper Irving was the U.S. Army 3rd Ranger Battalion's deadliest sniper. He was the first African American to serve as a sniper in his battalion, and became known as “The Reaper” by the end of his active service. During a 4-month period in mid-2009, Irving tallied 33 kills as a master sniper. . . .

Hollywood Reporter, February 2

"Sympathy must precede belligerence. First I must understand the other, as it were, from the inside; then I can critique it from the outside. So many people skip right to the latter." -- Steven D. Greydanus
