Our buddies over at Expendables Premiere are reporting more Dolph related news (busy man); he has signed on to star with Mickey Rourke, Chuck Lidddell and Luke Goss in a World War II movie called War Pigs.
PLOT: At the peak of the WWII, the allies advance against Nazi Germany, a disgraced US Army Captain Jack Wosick, is “volunteered” by Major A.J. Redding to train a rag tag unit of misfit soldiers known as the “War Pigs.” Jack is to prepare them for select and secret missions against one of Hitler’s super weapons: the powerful V-3. To get his unorthodox assignment accomplished Redding pairs Jack with a battle hardened German born French Legionnaire, Captain Peter Picault. Together, they are ordered to train the War Pigs into a functioning reconnaissance unit.
Training begins under the battle tested guidance of Captain Picault, but is made more difficult by Sergeant August Chambers and his lack luster belief in the Army’s officer Corp. During the training, the men use various unorthodox commando tactics including weapons training, knife fighting, observation, deception, and rule-breaking. Jack, with the help of Picault, gradually earns the respect of his new unit. Jack’s War Pigs are ready for their fight against Hitler and their mission against the Nazi Wonder Weapon and must go behind enemy lines.
Apparently the movie is already financed but there is a kickstarter campaign to raise money for “extras” like more tanks, background actors and WW2 equipment to increase the scale.
