Straight off of the SOFREP entertainment beat today, in news that is sure to enrage all of you out there who are sick and tired of seeing and hearing about U.S. Navy SEALs all throughout the media — excluding on this website, of course — it was reported on the cinema-focused website deadline.com recently that a new action movie centered around a group of Navy SEALs will be released on the Friday of Super Bowl weekend, February 3, 2017.
The film, entitled “Renegades,” and formerly called “The Lake,” has been in production for over a year, and tells the story of a group of Navy SEALs deployed to “war-torn Europe” (Serbia, according to a separate report), who discover a stash of gold at the bottom of a lake, worth hundreds of millions of dollars.
To help the local population, according to deadline.com, the group of SEALs “go rogue” (who doesn’t love when they do that?) and “engineer a heist to retrieve the gold and return it to its rightful owners in a race against the clock.”
This is, of course, one of only many recent films to feature Navy SEALs, not the least of which were “Lone Survivor” (based on the book by Marcus Luttrell) and “American Sniper” (based on the book by the late Chris Kyle).
