It looks like there is another pair of competing movies covering the same subject matter, this time from two very different perspectives. While Robert Downey Jr is producing a film told from the perspective of a young boy trying to exonerate the captain of the USS Indianapolis, the other will follow a straight ahead plot about the disaster. Starring Nicolas Cage, Thomas Jane, Tom Sizemore, and now Cody Walker, USS INDIANAPOLIS: MEN OF COURAGE is currently in production in Alabama.

Cody Walker, brother of FAST AND FURIOUS' Paul Walker, will be making his feature acting debut after stepping in to complete scenes for FURIOUS 7 after the untimely death of his brother. Walker joins the naval disaster film which is being directed by Mario Van Peebles. I would not hold my breath for this to be the breakout film in Walker's career as it reeks of Redbox.

The USS Indianapolis tragedy is best remembered from the classic monologue delivered by Robert Shaw in JAWS but has never been fully portrayed on screen. The brutal shark attacks in the story may be hard for some to stomach but it has the potential to be powerful cinema.

USS INDIANAPOLIS: MEN OF COURAGE is now filming.

Starring Nic Cage and Thomas Jane? Even if this movie turns out to be straight to DVD, I'll definitely watch it.

It's been on the (small) screen before.

"The USS Indianapolis tragedy is best remembered from the classic monologue delivered by Robert Shaw in JAWS but has never been fully portrayed on screen."

I haven't seen it since I was a kid, but the tv movie Mission of the Shark was about the Indianapolis sinking.

Even as a kid I remember how terrified I was of that 'classic monologue delivered by Robert Shaw' but looked up the story a few years a go when I heard about a potential movie. The truth is that most of the sailors apparently died from thirst (I think it was). Still very sad and tragic...but one can understand why they chose to play up the shark angle in the retelling of that story. So, eleven hundred men went into the water. 316 men come out, dehydration took the rest.
