BOO!

Ben Affleck is supposed to star in and direct a World War Two drama based on the Ghost Army. The United States Army recruited artists, advertising experts, and other creative types for a top-secret project. This military unit specialized in creating illusions that helped the United States win the war. Portions of this fascinating story about battlefield deception are still classified.*

Art. Illusion. Deception... and war. This is the amazing true story of a secret US Army mission to trick the Germans during World War II. From 1944 until the final stages of the war, a US army unit called The Ghost Army designed and implemented incredible feats of illusion designed to fool the enemy about the strength and location of American units.
