Based on The New York Times bestselling true story of heroism, courage and resilience, LONE SURVIVOR tells the incredible tale of four Navy SEALs on a covert mission to neutralize a high-level al-Qaeda operative who are ambushed by the enemy in the mountains of Afghanistan. Faced with an impossible moral decision, the small band is isolated from help and surrounded by a much larger force of Taliban ready for war. As they confront unthinkable odds together, the four men find reserves of strength and bravery as they stay in the fight to the finish.
MARK WAHLBERG (The Fighter, Contraband) leads the cast as Marcus Luttrell, the author of the first-person memoir “Lone Survivor”. Starring alongside Wahlberg as the other members of the elite team who gave everything for their brothers-in-arms are TAYLOR KITSCH (Savages, Friday Night Lights), EMILE HIRSCH (Into the Wild, television’s Bonnie and Clyde) and BEN FOSTER (3:10 to Yuma, Kill Your Darlings). ERIC BANA (Star Trek, Hanna) joins the core team as Commanding Officer Erik Kristensen.
Lone Survivor is written and directed by PETER BERG.
