A day or two ago Rod Lurie‘s The Outpost, a U.S. forces-vs.-the Taliban war flick based on Jake Tapper’s book, had a surprise screening at the Thessaloniki Film Festival. Variety exec vp of content Steven Gaydos happened to see it and raved, which means something as Gaydos is no one’s idea of a glad-hander or pushover.

The Outpost costars Orlando Bloom, Scott Eastwood, Caleb Landry Jones, Milo Gibson, Jack Kesy and Will Attenborough. Definitely a 2020 film.
