Il progetto è prodotto da Tom Hardy e sarà diretto da Angelina Jolie: è la biografia del fotografo di guerra inglese Don McCullin.
Unreasonable Behaviour questo il titolo del film sarà il quinto diretto dalla Jolie dopo In the Land of Blood and Honey, Unbroken, By the Sea e First They Killed My Father.
Gregory Burke (’71) scriverà la sceneggiatura.
La Jolie ha dichiarato tutto il suo amore per il lavoro del fotografo: “I am humbled to have a chance to bring Don McCullin’s life to film. I was drawn to his unique combination of fearlessness and humanity – his absolute commitment to witnessing the truth of war, and his empathy and respect for those who suffer its consequences. We hope to make a film that is as uncompromising as Don’s photography, about the extraordinary people and events he witnessed, and the rise and fall of a unique era in journalism.”
Altrettanto felice McCullin: “Having viewed Angelina’s last film on Cambodia (and having spent so much time during the war there) I was very impressed at how she made such a powerful and accurate representation of the place at that time. I feel as if I am in safe, capable and professional hands with her.”
