EXCLUSIVE: In competitive bidding, Relativity has acquired Fearless, based on the Eric Blehm bestselling book on SEAL Team Six operative Adam Brown. Brown battled personal demons, including drug addiction and jail time, to fulfill his childhood dream of becoming a Navy SEAL. With the support of his wife and family, and drawing on his faith, Brown persevered through relapses and overcame what should have been career ending injuries to earn a spot on the elite SEAL Team Six unit. In a final act of true selflessness, Brown volunteered for an exceptionally dangerous mission during which he was killed protecting his teammates. Like Lone Survivor, this movie is the story of a tale of courage and sacrifice and a man’s unwavering love for his family, his fellow SEAL members, and his country. Have to say I don’t think there can be too many powerful movies that remind us of the sacrifice these soldiers make under the most dangerous conditions.
Ryan Kavanaugh and Christy Fletcher of Fletcher and Co. will produce the film. Tucker Tooley will serve as executive producer. Brett Dahl is overseeing the project on behalf of the studio. The author previously wrote The Last Season and The Only Thing Worth Dying For.
Said Tooley: “Navy SEAL Adam Brown’s story is one of incredible determination, strength and heroism, and Relativity is proud to work on a film that honors him.” Resolution’s Rich Green repped the author and Linda Lichter repped Fletcher. Here is a trailer that was made when the book got published:
