Andrew Garfield turns war correspondent for a biopic


Actor Andrew Garfield has been roped in to star as war correspondent in biopic “Black Lion”. The actor, who scored his first Oscar nod for leading the cast of Mel Gibson’s WWII drama “Hacksaw Ridge,” will be playing real-life war correspondent Carlos Mavroleon, reported Deadline. The biopic will chart Mavroleon’s time in the Middle East. The film will be framed around his final assignment, which saw him crossing into Afghan territory for a 60 Minutes segment soon after President Clinton’s missile strikes against Osama Bin Laden’s camps.
