Chris Hemsworth made it clear that he didn’t want to disappoint the real life heroes behind the upcoming movie “12 Strong.”
The plot of the film, according to IMDB, is, “12 Strong tells the story of the first Special Forces team deployed to Afghanistan after 9/11; under the leadership of a new captain, the team must work with an Afghani warlord to take down the Taliban.”
Hemsworth and fellow star Michael Pena sat down with JoBlo.com to discuss what it was like having the actual Afghanistan war heroes on set with them.
“Huge amount of pressure. You know, you’re constantly second guessing yourself…You want to do them proud. You want to do the story proud,” Hemsworth said about his experience shooting the movie.
This is exactly what I want to hear from Hemsworth and everybody else involved in this movie. This story deserves to be told, and it deserves to be told correctly.
Also, I’m catching an advanced screening of this movie tomorrow. Check back to get an early review on the film.
