The film is based on the 1999 book of the same name by English journalist and war correspondent Anthony Loyd.

Tom will also produce, while The Accountant‘s Gavin O’Connor is set to direct and produce.

“My War Gone By, I Miss It So” is Anthony‘s “personal account of the Bosnian War, and alternates between his experiences in Bosnia and personal reflections of his time in the British army, his parents’ divorce, his estrangement from his father, and his heroin addiction.”

“‘My War Gone By’ is a brutal yet sensitive story which addresses both the nature of addiction and the experience of war,” Tom said. “I was struck by Anthony’s work and words, experiences, and for me his is an important voice and an important book.”

Quincy Jones Awarded $9.4 Million From Michael Jackson Estate After Royalties Dispute

Quincy Jones Awarded $9.4 Million From Michael Jackson Estate After Royalties Dispute

Quincy Jones was awarded $9.4 million on Wednesday (July 26) following a dispute with the late Michael Jackson‘s estate regarding unpaid music royalties.

The 84-year-old record producer says he was underpaid for music used in Michael’s documentary This Is It, as well as two Cirque du Soleil shows, Variety reports.

The royalties and production fees arise from some of Michael’s biggest hits like “Thriller” and “Billie Jean.”

In the lawsuit filed around four years ago, Quincy sought $30 million, according to the Associated Press. Meanwhile, Michael’s estate claimed the number was around $392,000.

“As an artist, maintaining the vision and integrity of one’s creation is of paramount importance,” Quincy said in a statement. “I, along with the team I assembled with Michael, took great care and purpose in creating these albums, and it has always given me a great sense of pride and comfort that three decades after they were originally recorded, these songs are still being played in every corner of the world.”

“This lawsuit was never about Michael, it was about protecting the integrity of the work we all did in the recording studio and the legacy of what we created,” he added. “Although this judgment is not the full amount that I was seeking, I am very grateful that the jury decided in our favor in this matter. I view it not only as a victory for myself personally, but for artists’ rights overall.”

Michael and Quincy worked together on Michael‘s albums Off the Wall, Thriller, and Bad.

'Game of Thrones' Spin-Off Will Premiere 'At Least a Year' After Series Finale

'Game of Thrones' Spin-Off Will Premiere 'At Least a Year' After Series Finale

Attention, Game of Thrones fans! We have some new details about the highly anticipated spin-off series.

HBO chief Casey Bloys announced at the Television Critics Association’s press tour on Wednesday (July 26) that the network won’t be launching any of the spin-offs until at least a year after the final season ends. (via THR)

“The No. 1 priority in all of this is the final season of Game of Thrones,” Casey said. “I don’t want to do anything with a spin-off or anything that detracts or distracts from that.”

“That season will happen, and my guess is it would be at least a year before you saw anything else,” he added. “What I don’t want is the attention to be drawn from the final season, which I think is going to be epic and amazing and somehow have the distraction of a new Game of Thrones airing right after that. It’s best to separate it and that’s what we’ll do.”

If you didn’t know, HBO and GOT author George R.R. Martin are currently working on five prequel spin-offs. Current characters from the hit series will not be featured.

Season eight of Game of Thrones is set to premiere in 2018.
