Angelina Jolie to Star in Afghanistan War Drama

One of America's favorite movie stars may be featured in a war drama about Afghanistan called Shoot Like a Girl. The film is based on a memoir by Major Mary Jennings Hegar. The film chronicles Hegar's accomplishments on the battlefield where she served three tours of duty as a rescue pilot (earning a Purple Heart on one tour) and also documents her role in helping to end the Pentagon ban on women serving in direct combat jobs in the military. The book - a memoir- is due out in the spring of 2018 with the movie to follow. Read more in a news report by Entertainment Weekly, September 30, 2016.
