Directed by David Michod, of 'Animal Kingdom' fame, the Netflix Original film is inspired by the book 'The Operators: The Wild & Terrifying Inside Story of America's War in Afghanistan' by late journalist Michael Hastings.

An investment in the range of USD 60 million also makes it Netflix's biggest-budget feature to date.

Hastings's blistering profile on McChrystal led to his firing by Obama. Pitt's company Plan B is also one of the producers of the film. The first big-budget Hollywood movie on Netflix will be released on May 26.
