    Kurt Russell, Sharon Stone and Adrian Brody are set to star in Waco - a film based on real life event that happened in Waco, Texas in 1993. Known in Wikipedia as the Waco Siege, it was one of the most tension-gripping event that goes wrong and resulted in the death of 81 civilians. Click on to read about the event.

    The project is set to be directed by Rupert Wainwright (Stigmata, The Fog). According to his site:
    WACO will be the first narrative feature film to explore the events of the ATF raid on Mt. Carmel, TX, the 51-day siege that followed, and the devastating compound fire that resulted in the deaths of 81 civilians. The movie cuts between ATF special agents, FBI Negotiators, the Davidians on the inside, the tactical Hostage Rescue Team leaders, and the political machinations in Washington DC.

    Expert and detailed research for the film was provide by Consultant Michael McNulty, who won an Emmy and was nominated for an Academy Award in 1999 for his documentary, Waco: The Rules of Engagement. He has produced two additional films on the Waco incident, as well as given expert testimony in front of Congress based on his research.

    Well, Waco is set to bound for controversial. According to Screen Rant, the Texas Film Commission Director Bob Hudgins denied the film incentive money to the producers last year after reviewing the scripts and talking with journalists and law enforcements who were directly involved in the incident.Whether it is controversial or not, we hope that this film will be truly as engaging as the real event.
