Morton Report Exclusive: Vin Diesel to Star in Upcoming Seal Team Six Film

Vin Diesel picked to star in new film on the Navy's elite Seal Team Six.

Sources have revealed to the Morton Report exclusively that action star Vin Diesel has signed on to star in a film about the Navy's Seal Team Six. The team, as some may recall, are the highly trained elite force who carried out the lengthy covert operation to capture Al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden.

The film is based on the best-selling book by Howard Wasdin, Seal Team Six: Memoirs of An Elite Navy Sniper, which details the intense training this strike force undergoes in order to become part of the most elite military group, Seal Team Six is the Navy's equivalent to the Army's Delta Force. The book is Wasdin's account of his time on the team as a sniper and the actions they underwent during Operation Desert Storm and the deadly conflict in Somalia.

While the script is not completed and there's no release date, sources state the studio working on this sure-to-be-a-blockbuster flick, will push hard to release the film quickly to capitalize on the mass media attention surrounding the Seal Team Six's operation in Pakistan, which resulted in the dramatic death of the world's most sought after terrorist earlier this month.

Vin Diesel will bring an element of intensity and star power to the film, having made his name in as action star in The Fast and the Furious, The Chronicles of Riddick series of films. Diesel's latest film also starring Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and Paul Walker, Fast Five has been burning up the box office bringing in more than $440M worldwide. More developing...
