Disavowed or Dirty Dozen the Next Generation?

Michael Ross has come aboard to write the action thriller “Disavowed” for CBS Films.

Irwin Winkler (“Home of the Brave”) is producing the film, originally written by Philip Shelby, about a group of military prisoners in the U.S. secretly dispatched to the African nation of Eritrea to retrieve a bio-chemical weapon that has gone missing. If the group is successful in keeping it out of the wrong hands, the convicts’ prison sentences will be commuted.

Now I just pulled this off the Variety website and thought I like the idea of this film but this sounds a little bit familiar. After all of ten seconds of reacking my brain it cam to me…Dirty Dozen. Ok it’s very early days yet but this just sounds like a rehash of the Dirty Dozen films. I don’t have a problem with that as such as I enjoyed the films (well the first one at least) but with this and the A-team remake on the way I would just like to see a few more original ideas slipping through in the action film genre.
