“With American Sniper, we are excited to team up for the first time with Academy Award-winning iconic director Clint Eastwood, as well as work with our valued and longtime partners at Warner Bros.,” said Greg Foster, senior executive VP, IMAX Corp. and CEO of IMAX Entertainment. “American Sniper is a tense and engaging drama — one that will keep you on the edge of your seat, particularly when experiencing it in IMAX theatres.”
“Mr. Eastwood has created an incredibly intense and emotional film that deserves to be experienced in the most breathtaking way,” said Dan Fellman, president, Domestic Distribution, Warner Bros. Pictures.

The film is produced by Eastwood, Robert Lorenz, Andrew Lazar, Bradley Cooper and Peter Morgan. Tim Moore, Jason Hall, Sheroum Kim, Steve Mnuchin and Bruce Berman served as executive producers.
