Default The Pacific

For those of us who enjoyed HBO's Band Of Brothers....The Pacific is due to be on HBO in march of 2010 it will be based primarily on two memoirs of U.S. Marines: With the Old Breed by Eugene Sledge and Helmet for My Pillow by Robert Leckie.

The series will tell the stories of the two authors and Marine John Basilone, and will feature well-known battles involving the 1st Marine Division, such as Guadalcanal, Cape Gloucester, Peleliu, and Okinawa, as well as Basilone's involvement in the Battle of Iwo Jima.

Tom Hanks says that "Itís having its score finalized. I think itís going to be March 2010. We are able to visit the home front on this one and weíre able to show the guys before the War and after. We show some of the most vicious stuff Iíve ever seen on film - because it has to be

Exactly. I'm going to talk to the wife about adding movie channels to our Cable package just so that I can watch this. I'll need a reminder as it gets close to time to air so that I can remind her.

I hope it doesn't take too long for the DVD release because I don't have and never will pay for HBO.

Band Of Brothers is an epic series and if Tom Hanks is behind this as well it should be another winner.
