Director Michael Bay plans to get right into the middle of the 2016 elections with the release of 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi, which hits theaters on January 15th, 2 1/2 weeks before the Iowa Caucus.
The movie details the story of the private contractors hired to protect State Department personnel during the September 11, 2012 attacks on the American diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya.
Bay gets into the political thriller game with Jim and Roy from The Office (John Krasinski and David Denman) in lead roles. The film also stars Max Martini (Saving Private Ryan, Captain Phillips) Pablo Schreiber (The Wire, Orange is the New Black), Toby Stephens (Black Sails, Die Another Day) and James Badge Dale (The Pacific).
