“Valley of the Wolves: Palestine,” inspired by the May 31 Israeli attack on the Mavi Marmara, a Turkish humanitarian aid ship heading to Gaza, that resulted in the deaths of nine people, will hit theaters in November in about 100 countries around the world.
The movie is based on the controversial television series “Kurtlar Vadisi” (Valley of the Wolves) and will be a follow up to “Valley of the Wolves: Iraq” (2006) and “Valley of the Wolves: Gladio” (2008).
Ever since the movie came on the agenda, claims that it will increase the already high tension between Turkey and Israel have emerged. Some changes were to the movie’s plot after Israel’s attack on the Gaza-bound aid flotilla. The movie aims to take revenge on Israel for the deadly raid that led to an outcry worldwide. “Valley of the Wolves: Palestine” is projected to cost over $10 million, making it one of the most expensive Turkish films ever.
