Clint Eastwood is putting together a fighting force for his WWII film, Flags of Our Fathers, and the latest dogface to sign up is the human slab of void, Paul Walker. Walker, one of the single worst and least interesting actors of his species, will play Hank Hansen, one of the guys who raised the flag on Iwo Jima.
The film is based on the book of the same title by James Bradley and Ron Powers, and it tells the story of the battle for Iwo Jima from Bradley’s point of view – he didn’t realize until years later that his dad was one of the flag raisers, and a bona fide hero.
Ryan Phillipe, who shocked America by not being the worst thing in Crash, also stars, along with Jesse Bradford and Adam Beach. Paul Haggis, the offending party behind Crash, which is tied with Batman Begins as the movie that most thoroughly annoyed me, has written the script for Flags of Our Fathers.
Meanwhile, production has begun in LA on the gay porn version of the film, which has the same title – minus one "L."
