A wildly popular Turkish television and film thriller franchise staring an action hero dubbed the "Turkish James Bond" will make a movie about the failed July 15 coup, its producer announced. Since it was first created in 2003, the "Valley of the Wolves" franchise has spawned dozens of television episodes and several spin-off films, enthralling many Turkish viewers. It did not give further details but the film will most likely see the return of Turkish secret service action hero Polat Alemdar (Necati Sasmaz) to do battle with the coup plotters who aimed to unseat President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.In a twist worthy of the franchise itself, Turkish media including the Hurriyet daily said the producers had taken possession of a website domain "Valley of the Wolves – Coup" (kurtlarvadisidarbe.com) on May 18, two months before the coup even took place.
