War and comedy may not seem like easy bedfellows, but Tina Fey is giving it a go with Whiskey Tango Foxtrot. The film, previously known as Taliban Shuffle, is based on a true story of a reporter getting out of their depth in Afghanistan.
Inspired by Kim Barker’s memoir, the film follows her after she first arrived in Kabul as a journalist in 2002. At the time she barely owned a passport, spoke only English and had little idea how to do the ‘Taliban Shuffle’ between Afghanistan and Pakistan. However, her stories about Islamic militants and shaky reconstruction were soon overshadowed by the bigger news in Iraq. But as she delved deeper into Pakistan and Afghanistan, her love for the hapless countries grew, along with her fear for their future stability. Martin Freeman and Margot Robbie co-star.
Whiskey Tango Foxtrot due out in the UK March 4th 2016. Take a look at the new trailer below.
