Tina Fey Faces War in the Whiskey Tango Foxtrot Trailer

By Maryann Yin Comment

Paramount Pictures has unveiled an official trailer for Whiskey Tango Foxtrot. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the story for this film adaptation comes from a memoir written by a war reporter named Kim Barker. The book is called The Taliban Shuffle: Strange Days in Afghanistan and Pakistan.

The video embedded above offers glimpses of Tina Fey playing the role of Barker. The theatrical release date has been set for March 04, 2016.

Here’s more from The Wall Street Journal: “Given Fey’s involvement, it should hardly be a shock that Whiskey Tango Foxtrot (abbreviate it to get the joke) is a black comedy. This means that in addition to avoiding death and injury in violent combat areas, Barker’s life in Afghanistan provides a brand-new perspective on how she’ll be judged on her looks.” (via Vanity Fair)
