(Delo Photo Craft) Wayne Family Plans Movie On Viet War By BOB THOMAS AP Movie-Television Writer HOLLYWOOD (AP) — No major movie has been made about the conflict in Viet Nam. Now the Wayne family aims to correct that condition. Universal Pictures has announced the forthcoming production of "Green Berets," to star John Wayne with Michael Wayne as producer. Michael is the handsome 31-year- old son of John and president of Batjac Productions, which com- t)rises the Wayne empire. The younger Wayne reported on the Viet Nam film: "The story is based on the Robin Moore book which has sold three million copies and created a great deal of conti'o- versy. At first we had heard that • David Wolper had bought the rovel, so. we lost interest. But then we found out that Wolper had dropped his option, and we started negotiations to buy it " 'The Green Berets' seemed ideal for two reasons: 1. It is a subject that is controversial and topical — something that is on everyone's mind; 2. This is a new kind of war witli a variety of new-fangled weapons that have never been shown in a movie before. Tlie whole thing seemed to offer an excellent vehicle for my father and two other top stars." The Waynes hired as writer James Lee Barettt, who had written the hard-hitting "The D.I." for Jack Webb and "Shenandoah," last year's Civil War film with James Stewart. The project was taken up with the Pentagon, since the film makers would need use of troops and equipment to create a convincing picture of the Viet war. "They were extremely cooperative," said Mike Wayne of the Washington brass. "They encouraged us in the project and were happy that it was in the hands of responsible people." Producer Wayne said Re hoped to get the film into production early in 1967. It would be made mostly oji location, beginning at Ft. Bragg with training of the Special Forces and continuing to a simulation of the Viet Nam terrain, the original being too hazardous for film making. Wayne suggested the Philippines or Panama might do. The two other stars? Wayne's current hope: Lee Mai-vin and Steve McQueen.
