The Tracking Board, has reported that Ben Affleck is currently in talks with Sony Pictures to direct Red Platoonan Afghanistan war film, which is based on the memoir of Staff Sergeant Clinton Romesha. Reports revealed that the studio is also looking at casting Ben’s brother Casey Affleck to play Romesha, along with George Clooney serving as one of the producers.

The film will chronicle the Battle of Kamdesh in 2009, when more than 300 Taliban fighters launched an attack on an American outpost, forcing Romesha to lead an impromptu counter attack with a much smaller band of soldiers and take back the base.
