Devil Dogs Movie: In Production

Rebel Seed Films has gone into production on the action/war film Devil Dogs.

The short drama tells the story of an American photojournalist who struggles with his assignment - and his emotions - when he embeds with a team of U.S. Marines during fierce urban combat in the deadliest battle of the Iraq War, the fight for Fallujah in 2004.

Production Details...

FILMING

To ensure the highest quality film, the production is:

  • Utilizing cutting-edge, top-of-the-line equipment. The short film will be shot with two RED cameras, and the addition of a steadicam.

  • Shooting at a professional back-lot location to replicate the context of the Fallujah environment (this is the exact same location Clint Eastwood recently used to film American Sniper).

  • Hiring four military advisors (three U.S. Marine veterans and one U.S. Navy camera and combat veteran), including one Marine who actually served and fought in Fallujah in 2004.

  • Conferring with participants in the actual battle. Director Lindsay Holt reached out to Colonel Mike Shupp (USMC ret.), who was the Regimental Commander, 1st Marine Regiment, and who graciously and generously shared personal details the filmmakers will incorporate into the story for accuracy, even replicating action props to match items carried by the Colonel.

THE CREW

The production has created a team of high-level filmmakers who have worked on projects including The Bourne Identity, White House Down, Up In The Air, I Am Legend, Open Range, Twilight, Anger Management, Thank You For Smoking, Dexter, Castle, The Division, and Face/Off.

THE CAST

The production built a cast of amazing actors who have been featured on television in Ray Donovan, CSI: Miami, Code Black, The Mentalist, Castle, Bones, Pretty Little Liars, Law & Order: LA, and Alias, and appeared in the films American Sniper, Fort Bliss, The Dark Knight Rises, and Star Trek.

THE MUSIC

The production has hired musician Ira Ingber to produce the theme song for the film. Ira has worked with such music industry notables as Bob Dylan, Brian Wilson, J.D. Souther, and Bonnie Raitt.
