The first images of Bradley Cooper as Chris Kyle from American Sniper have been released by USA Today.
American Sniper is the true story of Chris Kyle, a Navy Seal who was the most lethal sniper in American history with 160 confirmed kills and a total of 255 claimed kills. Kyle served four tours in the Iraq War, during which he was wounded twice and was involved in six IED attacks. He was honorably discharged in 2009 and then went on to write his autobiography American Sniper. He was shot and killed at a gun range in 2013, the shooter is currently awaiting trial for his murder.
It’s certainly an interesting story; but I’m curious how much of this film will focus on Eastwood’s well known republican pride. We’ll find out when the film opens in limited release on Christmas Day followed by a wide release on January 16th 2015.
