A new film about the Six-Day War, based on the book "The Lion’s Gate: On The Front Lines Of The Six Day War," is under development by the producer Basil Iwanyk, a media report says.
The book, drawing on interviews with veterans of the war and others, tells the story of Israel's quick June 1967 victory over several Arab armies, in which it took the West Bank, Gaza Strip, the Golan Heights, East Jerusalem and the Western Wall.
Deadline.com says Iwanyk will seek out a writer after he acquired the book out of his development fund.
The story of the Six-Day War has been told before, in the 2007 film "Six Days in June," directed by Ilan Ziv.
