The Plot: When reporter Kim Baker’s (Fey) life needs something more, she decides to ‘shake it all up’ by taking an assignment in a war zone. There, in the midst of chaos, she finds the strength she never knew she had. Sometimes it takes saying ‘WTF’ to find the life you were always destined to have.
Kim Barker, the real reporter who penned the book and is portrayed by Tina Fey (30 Rock, Sisters) in Whiskey Tango Foxtrot, is featured in a just-released new featurette for the comedy/drama. In the behind the scenes video, Tina Fey confirms scenes that appear to be too strange to be true are the scenes actually based on Barker’s experiences as recounted in Barker’s The Taliban Shuffle: Strange Days In Afghanistan And Pakistan. Paramount Pictures also released two clips from the film directed by Glenn Ficarra and John Requa (Crazy, Stupid, Love, I Love You Phillip Morris). In addition to Fey, the cast includes Margot Robbie (Suicide Squad), Martin Freeman (Sherlock), Alfred Molina (Gravity Falls), and Billy Bob Thornton (Fargo). Whiskey Tango Foxtrot will open in theaters on March 4, 2016.
