LIZZIE Movie Review 'Chloë Sevigny Is Superb In The Film & Captivates The Audience'

Michael Mann To Direct Eight Part Miniseries “Hue”

Michael Mann (“Public Enemies,” “Heat”) and super producer Michael De Luca (“Moneyball,” “The Social Network”) have acquired the rights to “Black Hawk Down” author Mark Bowden’s book, “Hue” which chronicles the turning point of the American War in Vietnam, according to Deadline. They’re going to turn this into an eight to ten hour miniseries, many of its episodes will be directed by Mann.

By January 1968, despite an influx of half a million American troops, the fighting in Vietnam seemed to be at a stalemate. Yet General William Westmoreland, commander of American forces, announced a new phase of the war in which “the end begins to come into view.” The North Vietnamese had different ideas. In mid-1967, the leadership in Hanoi had started planning an offensive intended to win the war in a single stroke. Part military action and part popular uprising, the Tet Offensive included attacks across South Vietnam, but the most dramatic and successful would be the capture of Hue, the country’s cultural capital. At 2:30 a.m. on January 31, 10,000 National Liberation Front troops descended from hidden camps and surged across the city of 140,000. By morning, all of Hue was in Front hands save for two small military outposts.

The commanders in country and politicians in Washington refused to believe the size and scope of the Front’s presence. Captain Chuck Meadows was ordered to lead his 160-marine Golf Company against thousands of enemy troops in the first attempt to re-enter Hue later that day. After several futile and deadly days, Lieutenant Colonel Ernie Cheatham would finally come up with a strategy to retake the city, block by block and building by building, in some of the most intense urban combat since World War II.
