Somali Pirates

The last one we wrote about (an adaptation of Wilbur Smith’s novel Those In Peril) was in March; today brings word of what is being described as a "Somali piracy actioner" titled High Value Target.

To be directed by Spenser Cohen (from a script he is co-writing with Zach Luna), the film (said to be inspired by real events) centers on "a multi-national hit-squad consisting of five elite special ops soldiers who take out a ship of 200 Somali soldiers/pirates and capture a high value target with vital information."

The project which the newly-formed Energy Independent has come on board to produce, is reportedly being shopped around to financers.

Energy Independent was launched in February by Energy Entertainment owner Brooklyn Weaver with private equity sources that fund development, package and produce projects in the $15 million and under range.
