Black Hawk Down, starring Pearl Harbor's Josh Hartnett and directed by Gladiator's Ridley Scott, is currently wrapping up production in Morocco. The film is about the fierce opposition U.S. forces encountered in Somalia in 1993. Because the movie positively portrays the valor and commitment of the U.S. military, the Department of Defense loaned the production eight Black Hawk combat helicopters and approximately 30 Rangers, an elite fighting force. First, however, Secretary of Defense Donald H, Rumsfeld and the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff had to sign off on the project. It's the first time the military deployed an actual task force from the U.S. to a foreign country to make a movie.
