Filmmaker Sam Raimi hasn’t been quick to choose his next project after last year’s VFX-filled Oz the Great and Powerful for Disney, but we now have something on the horizon for the veteran director. Raimi will produce and supervise development of an adaptation of Jake Tapper’s book The Outpost: An Untold Story of American Valor with an eye towards possibly directing. The nonfiction book chronicles the 2009 battle in Afghanistan, 14 miles from the Pakistani border, where 53 Americans were overrun by 400 Taliban fighters. The conflict resulted in two Medal of Honor recipients, marking the first time the award has been given to two living soldiers for the same battle since 1968. Hit the jump for more.
