Waco Seige Movie in the Works by Shallows Director for Mark Boal Production

2 min read

A new movie has been announced by Deadline Hollywood.

The director of “The Shallows” movie has moved into different territory with the movie, “Waco”. Jaume Collet-Serra has come on to direct “Waco” for Annapurna Pictures and Mark Boal’s Page 1 production banner.

The Shallows is a 2016 American survival thriller with Blake stranded 200 yards from shore, and she must use her wits and determination to survive a great white shark attack.

Mark Boal (born January 23, 1973) is an American journalist, screenwriter and film producer. In 2012, Boal wrote and produced Zero Dark Thirty, and teamed again with director Kathryn Bigelow, about the capture of Osama bin Laden.

In 2009 he wrote and produced The Hurt Locker, for which he won both the Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay and the Academy Award for Best Picture.

The Waco siege was a siege of a compound belonging to the group Branch Davidians by American federal and Texas state law enforcement and US military between February 28 and April 19, 1993. The Branch Davidians, a sect that separated in 1955 from the Seventh-day Adventist Church, was led by David Koresh and lived at Mount Carmel Center ranch in the community of Elk, Texas, nine miles (14 kilometers) east-northeast of Waco. The group was suspected of weapons violations, causing a search and arrest warrant to be obtained by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF).

The incident began when the ATF attempted to raid the ranch. An intense gun battle erupted, resulting in the deaths of four government agents and six Branch Davidians. Upon the ATF’s failure to raid the compound, a siege was initiated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the standoff lasting 51 days. Eventually, the FBI launched an assault and initiated a tear gas attack in an attempt to force the Branch Davidians out of the ranch. During the attack, a fire engulfed Mount Carmel Center. In total, 76 people died, including David Koresh.

The news was first reported by Deadline Hollywood.
