It had prompted a 1976 film, also known as’Midway’, that depended heavily on stock footage from World War II documentaries. A first appearance poster of the movie is out, and it looks like a promising, sensible retelling of the warfare using a star studded cast Emmerich’s track record and a major budget.
The movie recounts the narrative of the Battle of Midway, told from the US leaders and the natives that fought it. The battle was a turning point in the Pacific Theater of World War II, turning the tide against the Axis forces in the war. The Battle of Midway started 77 decades back on June 4, 1942, and lasted until June 7. The conflict, that was the very first measure for the US at a yearlong campaign to win the war against Japan, represented the first great American success of the War in the Pacific.
The film is written by Wes Tooke and produced by Emmerich’s Centropolis Entertainment, Harald Kloser, Mark Gordon, and Dong Yu. Emmerich said that the first time he had the idea to work on ‘Midway’ was 20 years ago. “I had a deal at Sony, but the movie didn’t come together because the studio was owned by Japanese, so they were not very inclined to do a movie where they felt like the big losers of a battle,” he said. “I always wanted to tell them that I will not show the Japanese as losers. Decision-makers started this war. The Navy did not start the war,” he added.
