The project is being produced by Tom Hardy and Dean Baker under their Hardy Son & Baker banner alongside Working Title Films’ Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner. McCullin and Mark George are executive producing. BAFTA-nominated screenwriter Gregory Burke is penning the screenplay.

According to Indian Express, Sir Don McCullin was born in 1935 in London’s Finsbury Park, which was a poor and rough area at the time.

After leaving school at 15, he signed up for National Service in the Royal Air Force as a photographic assistant, and his first posting was during the Suez Canal crisis in 1956. McCullin’s most notable work dates back to the 1960s and goes through the 1980s.

Between 1966 and 1984, he worked as an overseas correspondent for the Sunday Times Magazine, where his coverage of crises in Vietnam and Northern Ireland won him especial acclaim.

Now 85, McCullin lives in Somerset, England. While his photographic subjects are now more pastoral in nature, he’s be best known for his iconic black and white images of war, conflict and poverty.
