Add another Navy SEAL film to the growing slate of post–Bin Laden films, this one "unapologetically patriotic," with Peter Berg set to direct and his 'Battleship' star Taylor Kitsch mentioned to star.

Fresh from wrapping 'Battleship,' Berg will bring 'Lone Survivor,' an adaptation of the book by Marcus Luttrell, to the big screen.

Berg actually wanted to tackle the film two years ago, but Universal wanted him to do 'Battleship' first, as Mideast-set movies like 'Green Zone' and his own 'The Kingdom' haven't done well at box office. Now, of course, anything related to bin Laden or Navy SEALs couldn't be hotter.

The actor-turned-director wrote 'Lone Survivor' after embedding with a SEAL team for a month in Iraq. The film will focus on the harrowing story of how Navy SEAL team members fought to stay alive after being ambushed in Afghanistan in 2005 by Taliban forces during a covert mission to kill a terrorist leader.
