‘Chopper’ and ‘The Assassination Of Jesse James By The Coward Robert Ford’ director Andrew Dominik and Tom Hardy (‘Mad Max: Fury Road’) are set to team for the Netflix thriller ‘War Party.’

With Dominik directing from a script he co-wrote with newcomer Harrison Query, the project is based on true events and centres on a group of Navy SEALS. Further details are under wraps.

Ridley Scott and his Scott Free Films, which is behind Hardy’s period drama ‘Taboo,’ will produce. Netflix’s deep pockets helped secure Dominik’s pitch, beating out studios like Amazon, Lionsgate, and Universal Pictures.
