John Krasinski To Star In Michael Bay’s 13 Hours

'Promised Land' Photocall - 63rd Berlinale International Film Festival

Variety reports that The Office star John Krasinski is scheduled to star in Michael Bay’s upcoming film, 13 Hours. The film is based on the real life attacks by terrorists in Benghazi, Libya on Sept. 11, 2012 and based on a book by Mitchell Zuckoff.

“13 Hours” presents, for the first time ever, the true account of the events of September 11, 2012, when terrorists attacked the US State Department Special Mission Compound and a nearby CIA station called the Annex in Benghazi, Libya. A team of six American security operators fought to repel the attackers and protect the Americans stationed there. Those men went beyond the call of duty, performing extraordinary acts of courage and heroism, to avert tragedy on a much larger scale. This is their personal account, never before told, of what happened during the thirteen hours of that now-infamous attack.

Krasinski can be seen next in the untitled Cameron Crowe pic starring Emma Stone and Bradley Cooper.
