American Sniper is the new film from director Clint Eastwood and is based on the autobiography of Navy Seal Chris Kyle, who was tragically murdered by a troubled Marine at a shooting range in Texas last year. Kyle was one of the most lethal snipers in U.S. history and Star Bradley Cooper and the film makers hope to bring his story to screen with respect and dignity for the fallen soldier. Cooper told USA Today the following, "I had to do right by him and his family, there was really no choice. You're sitting across the dining-room table
talking to this person's father and mother. And his children and wife
are there. And he's passed away. Knowing that they are putting all of
their stories in your hands and the responsibly of that, it's actually
unique." American Sniper is in theaters later this year.
