The movie stars Daniel Brühl, known for Inglourious Basterds, Captain America: Civil War and Rush, and Rosamund Pike of Gone Girl, Jack Reacher, and Die Another Day.

7 Days in Entebbe comes from director José Padilha, who previously directed the 2014 Robocop remake as well as two episodes of Narcos on Netflix, which he also produces.

On June 27, 1976, hijackers commandeered an Air France flight from Israel to Paris and ultimately forced the plane with more than 200 aboard to land at Entebbe Airport in Uganda. Working Title's Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner produced along with Kate Solomon, Ron Halpern, and Michelle Wright. Now, that story is coming to the big screen with 7 Days in Entebbe. The thriller follows the hijackers and hostages as well as the political leaders trying to decide whether to negotiate or send an elite special forces unit on a dramatic rescue mission to free the hostages.

7 Days in Entebbe will be released on March 16, 2018 in the U.S. Were you aware of the story of the Entebbe hijacking? The TV movie Victory At Entebbe starred Kirk Douglas and Burt Lancaster at ABC in the same year.
