Anson Mount, Cam Gigandet, Freddy Rodriguez, and William Fichtner Join SEAL Team Six Movie CODE NAME: GERONIMO

     February 1, 2012


While most everyone’s eyes are on Kathryn Bigelow’s (The Hurt Locker) untitled drama about the hunt for Osama Bin Laden, another film about the Navy SEAL team tasked with bringing the terrorist leader down has assembled its cast. Variety reports that Anson Mount (TV’s Hell on Wheels), Cam Gigandet (Twilight), Freddy Rodriguez (Planet Terror), and William Fichtner (Black Hawk Down) are set to star in Code Name: Geronimo. John Stockwell (Turistas) is onboard to direct the actioner from a script by Kendall Lampkin.

Mount plays “an agile and assured member of SEAL Team Six,” and Kathleen Robertson is set as an eager CIA case officer. I’m not entirely sure we need two movies about the hunt for Bin Laden, and Bigelow’s definitely has the edge here. It’s her first film since winning the Best Director and Best Picture Oscar for The Hurt Locker and she’s assembled a very impressive cast (including Joel Edgerton, Jessica Chastain, and Chris Pratt). Bigelow’s film is set to open this December, but Code Name: Geronimo doesn’t seem to have a release date yet. Geronimo is currently filming in New Mexico.

    Does anyone know when Bigelow starts filming. There is so much BS surrounding her film.

    I hope Cam “God” Gigandet plays the lead and has lots of screen time. Eveytime I set eyes on him, I love him even more.

    Mr. Anson Mount, according to us who actually live in Hollywood, is defined as an actor who possesses “IT” ~ as did Humphrey Bogart, Montgomery Clift, Clark Gable, and Spencer Tracy. “IT” ~ that undefinable certain “something” that makes Mr. Mount a true “Star”!
