Britain's Channel 4 is receiving some harsh criticism today for their upcoming broadcast of a film showcasing what might occur should Prince Harry ever be taken hostage by the Taliban.
The Daily Mail reports that the 90-minute film, The Taking of Prince Harry, features some shocking scenes. One incident includes Harry having an unloaded gun pointed in his face, while another highlights Harry appearing in Al-Qaeda and Taliban-related propaganda. Australian-British actor Sebastian Reid — who is currently wrapping up the Shakespeare-centered drama Anonymous with director Roland Emmerich — stars as the ginger prince.
The 26-year-old Prince Harry, the second and youngest son of Prince Charles and Diana, the late Princess of Wales, was deployed to Afghanistan as an air controller in late 2007. But word leaked to the web shortly thereafter, adding to the concern that Harry would be a likely terrorist target. He returned home to Great Britain in February 2008 after serving 10 weeks.
The Taking of Prince Harry is set to premiere on Channel 4 at 9pm on October 21st.
