Michael Bay in Negotiations to Helm Benghazi Film ‘13 Hours’

– by Gig Patta

A Banghazi political drama is a different movie for Michael Bay.

Don’t worry though. It’ll still have plenty of explosions and flying bullets.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Bay is in talks to direct “13 Hours,” an adaptation of Mitchell Zuckoff’s book about the attack on the American embassy in Libya that killed U.S. Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens.

The script is written by Chuck Hogan (“The Town,” “The Strain”).

The focus will be on a security team that tried to defend the compound from terrorists on Sept. 11, 2012.

The project will be under the Paramount banner and has a budget in between $30 to $40 million.
