Assuming it doesn't get stuck in development hell, it'll be interesting to see a war film based around a naval battle. You don't see too many of those.
I wish they had gone with the Battle off Samar however. Midway had a far more decisive impact on the outcome of the Pacific War, but Taffy 3's battle against overwhelming odds makes for a much better story.
I am looking forward to seeing what this new Midway movie turns out like. I fear it may be like that old film pacific. I doubt it could rival TORA TORA TORA or Battle of the Japan Sea (1969) Nihonkai daikaisen.
As a pre-teen youngster, I remember seeing a black & white movie around 1959 or 1960, titled ' Battle of the Coral Sea ' in the city of Pune ( aka Poona ), located in the southwestern Indian state of Maharashtra. This battle was also one of the big engagements between the US Navy and the IJN.
