Frequent collaborators Bradley Cooper and Todd Phillips (the Hangover trilogy; the upcoming War Dogs) are back at it again with an all-new miniseries which just caught a greenlight over at HBO.
According to The Wrap, the miniseries will be based on Joby Warrick's Pulitzer Prize-winning book Black Flags: The Rise of ISIS, which followed ISIS "from its origins in a remote Jordanian prison to its stunning success in Syria". The book also tells the story of a small group of special agents - some American, some not - who have worked together in an effort to shut ISIS down.
At present, it does not sound as though Cooper will be playing a role in the series, but of course that's entirely possible (hell, maybe even likely). For now, the Hangover duo are only signed on to executive produce the series together, with Gregg Hurwitz writing and frequent HBO MVP Tim Van Patten onboard to direct at least some of the episodes.
That's about all we know for the time being, but stay tuned for updates as they arrive. In the meantime: any of you guys read this book? If so, what kind of miniseries should would be expecting? Think there'll be a role for Galifianakis or nah?
