"Yeah they should make a movie of this guy. Totally badass." -- random comment on YouTube
Tagline: One Sniper. Against An Empire.
An epic war film based on a true story of Simo Häyhä, the deadliest sniper in history. A legendary white ghost who hunts in the dark woods of Karelia, a Finnish superhero in a white mask and a white cape, instilling fear to the superstitious soldiers of invading Red Army like a Batman with a sniper rifle and a submachine gun. Realistic war film? Yeah, in the sense that The 300 was realistic. Let's not wreck a good story with truth. Think Garth Ennis' Punisher meets V for Vendetta in a Winter War setting.
