http://www.comingsoon.net/news/topnews.php?id=10292 Cast Boards Clint Eastwood's Flags Source: Variety July 7, 2005 Ryan Phillippe, Jesse Bradford and Adam Beach are set to star in Clint Eastwood's Flags of Our Fathers, which Eastwood is directing and producing with Steven Spielberg. Variety says the DreamWorks Pictures and Warner Bros. Pictures co-production is based on the book "Flags of Our Fathers: Heroes of Iwo Jima," by James Bradley with Ron Powers. Shooting is scheduled for August. The story is told from the point of view of Bradley, whose father was one of the six soldiers who raised the American flag at the battle of Iwo Jima. It was only after the elder James' death in 1994 that his son learned the full extent of his father's heroism. The screenplay was written by Paul Haggis, with whom Eastwood teamed on last year's Million Dollar Baby. DreamWorks will handle domestic distribution, with Warners taking overseas rights.
