Default Upcoming WW2 Sub Movie "USS Seaviper"



080129-N-2555N-313 MOBILE, Ala. (Jan. 29. 2008) Information Systems Technician 1st Class Joshua Shepard works inside a torpedo tube aboard the decommissioned World War II-era diesel submarine USS Drum (SS 228) to help prepare the submarine for the upcoming film "USS Seaviper." Mighty Moments Motion Pictures will begin filming in March 2008 and later plans to highlight Drum in a documentary. U.S. submarines – which made up only 2 percent of the U.S. fleet during the war – were responsible for 65 percent of all Japanese ships sunk. Drum sank 15 enemy ships. U.S. Navy photo by Mass Communication Specialist 3rd Class Alec J. Noe (Released)

Anybody here anything elses about this? Not much on the net - http://www.tcpalm.com/news/2007/jun/...for-a-locally/

All sounds a little dodgy to say the least.....

most of all USS Seaviper sounds like a very hollywoodish and lame name for a submarine. Besides, to my knowledge at least, all US subs up until the Los Angeles class were named after fish or sea-mammals.

I'll second that. The article says "locally produced" so we're not talking big budget here. I guess that's what they call an "independent" film. While I'm dubious, you never know, it may turn out to be a crackerjack little movie. Time will tell.

Umm...so was U-571.

I'm hoping for the best, expecting the worst, and keeping a grain of salt handy just in case.

That picture, though - polishing the brightwork. Brings back memories.

Bad ones.:rotfl:

No bloody way! Check the line that says you'll get paid when we get paid? Yeah, heard that before. When it's time to collect they'll say the film fell through no big bucks sorry next time, blah, blah, blah, yadda ,yadda, yadda. Me? I'd take the Producer and shove him in Tube No. 1. :rotfl:

"An American World War II submarine discovers a secret between Germany and Japan, and it must escape entrapment in order to deliver the information to Navy Headquarters before it's too late"


This film is in pre-production to be shot in Mobile, Alabama, aboard the WW2 submarine USS Drum and The Florida Treasure Coast.
Filming is scheduled for February 2008.
We have the crew established and will be shooting with the new super HD Red Camera www.red.com
USS SEAVIPER is now fully casted.
Parallel to the film USS SEAVIPER we are also producing a documentary on the USS DRUM a WW2 submarine that sank about 22 ships during WW2.The documentary will have interviews with Rear Admiral Rindskopf, who was the one of the Captains of the USS Drum. Along with Rear Admiral Rindskopf will be interviews with Commander Ramsing who also served on the USS Drum during WW2 and Rear Admiral Rindskopf's wife Sylvia who gives her feelings on how it was to be a mother and wife waiting for her husband to come home. The documentary will cover the battles fought by the Drum told by the veterans who served on the submarine in WW2.



A U.S. submarine is trapped below by a Japanese destroyer,
and its crew holds a secret for the turning point of WW II.
http://www.seaviper.net

U.S.S. SEAVIPER, the most tenacious submarine of a Navy wolf pack, has a commander whose dream is to have his boat "the best damn sub in the Navy!" It is September, 1944. Fresh from liberty on the island of Hawaii, SEAVIPER’s new mission from the Navy’s Com Sub Pac is to rescue downed airplane pilots. A radio ‘voice call’, in code (Little LuLu), is received from a distressed pilot by lifeguard ships. The boat within his coordinates is the U.S.S. SEAVIPER. The downed pilot, an American Navy airman, is rescued along with two Prisoners of War (POW) from a nearby island. But the Japanese and Germans also are discovered to be on this island together, and the submarine’s landing party needs to separate.
Forced to return to the boat while the Captain stays behind, the Chief Petty Officer realizes he must deal with unexpected changes in command; the Executive Officer being relieved of duty because of a head injury suffered during a depth charge attack and his rival rising to power. A stuck torpedo and structural damage to the boat from a Japanese destroyer becomes life-threatening and the boat’s survival is questioned. Under direct order from the boat’s Captain, he tries to maintain the boat’s position, regardless of the new Officer in Command who defies the direct order from the Captain, for the scheduled rendezvous with the landing party, and to deliver the enemy’s secret to Com Sub Pac.
Yet through it all, the CPO never fails to stop asking, searching for his missing brother. A brother, a flyboy, whose picture he holds close to his heart. With each new face, he hopes that maybe one will remember, or will know where his brother has gone

I sure hope this movie has some action instead of the heavy plot dialog that
hollywood seems to want to include in most movies today. Good example is
"Pearl Harbor", a 3 hour spectacular that in my opinion was a very good 1 hour
movie !! That 1 hour was the last hour of the film. The first 2 hrs. was garbage.

"Run Silent Run Deep", "Midway", "Tora Tora Tora" (USA/Japan?), "Patton", "Battle of the Bulge", "Guns of Navarone", "Saving Private Ryan" (I liked it), and a few others I can't remember the names of were all, IMO, good movies.
