The Quiet American director Phillip Noyce is on board to direct Foresight Unlimited’s World War II action-thriller, The Devil’s Brigade.
Based on true events, the story follows Davie Berman – the Luciano mob’s only Jewish member – and his service to the U.S. military when they request his aid in fighting the Germans in Italy. Berman would prove instrumental in organising the Sicilian Rosa Nostra to fight alongside the Americans and drive the Germans from southern Italy.
Shooting is set to begin at the end of the year in France with Moshe Diamond producing. Casting is currently underway.
