A Banghazi political drama is a different movie for Michael Bay.
Donâ€™t worry though. Itâ€™ll still have plenty of explosions and flying bullets.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Bay is in talks to direct â€œ13 Hours,â€ an adaptation of Mitchell Zuckoffâ€™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 (â€œThe Town,â€ â€œThe Strainâ€).
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.
