With “Midway” and the just announced “El-Alamein,” Lionsgate gets into the WWII movie business

David Ayer is, according to The Hollywood Reporter, in talks to direct a WWII combat drama ‘El-Alamein’ for #Lionsgate.

The once low budget mostly horror and cheap thriller studio is staking a claim to combat pictures in the digital effects age.

That’s a niche with a high after market ceiling, as such movies enjoy long life on home video, streaming, cable and broadcast movie channels.
