A Private War is the upcoming American biographical heart stopping film directed by Matthew Heineman and starring Rosamund Pike as journalist Marie Colvin and Jamie Dornan as her photographer. Directed by Academy Award nominated director for  Cartel Land, Mattew Heineman unveils the dark side of journalism.  What reporters go through when trying to bring the truth to public eye.   ‘A Private War’ is based on the 2012 article “Marie Colvin’s Private War” in Vanity Fair Magazine by Marie Brenner.

The film was written by Arash Amel and co-stars Tom Hollander, Jamie Dornan and Stanley Tucci.

Celebrated war correspondent Marie Colvin is a woman who is as comfortable downing martinis with high society’s elite as she is brazenly staring down warlords and fleeing from gunfire. Driven by an enduring desire to bear witness and give voice to the voiceless, Colvin charges into danger, constantly testing the limits between bravery and bravado

In February 2018, Aviron Pictures acquired distribution rights to ‘A Private War’. The distribution company premiered the official trailer of ‘A Private War’ on Monday August 27 on YouTube with immediate reaction.

Aviron Pictures has confirmed that the film will make its world premiere at the Mill Valley Film Festival on October 4, 2018. The film will then be released on November 2, 2018, in limited release, before expanding wide on November 16, 2018.

“In a world where journalism is under attack, Marie Colvin (Academy Award nominee Rosamund Pike) is one of the most celebrated war correspondents of our time. Colvin is an utterly fearless and rebellious spirit, driven to the frontlines of conflicts across the globe to give voice to the voiceless, while constantly testing the limits between bravery and bravado. After being hit by a grenade in Sri Lanka, she wears a distinctive eye patch and is still as comfortable sipping martinis with London’s elite as she is confronting dictators. Colvin sacrifices loving relationships, and over time, her personal life starts to unravel as the trauma she’s witnessed takes its toll. Yet, her mission to show the true cost of war leads her — along with renowned war photographer Paul Conroy (Jamie Dornan) — to embark on the most dangerous assignment of their lives in the besieged Syrian city of Homs. Based on the extraordinary life of Marie Colvin, A PRIVATE WAR is brought to the screen by Academy Award nominee and critically acclaimed documentary filmmaker Matthew Heineman in his pulse-pounding narrative feature debut”
