A film production company said Tuesday that a commando rescue operation that freed a South Korean freighter from Somali pirates in the Arabian Sea last month will be made into a movie this year, according to a news report.

"We will invest 20 billion won ($18 million) in making a film version of the military operation with the best crew", said Christmas Entertainment, which produced the mega-hit "The Host", which drew 13 million viewers in 2006.

The movie for the military operation, codenamed "The Dawn in the Gulf of Aden", will be distributed globally, the company added.

It said that work on the film will start up in September and that it is expected to be released in February next year, Yonhap news agency said.

The Samho Jewelry and its 21 crew members including eight South Koreans were hijacked by Somali pirates in mid-January in the Arabian Sea. South Korean naval special forces stormed the ship on Jan. 21 and rescued all the crew members alive, while killing eight pirates and capturing five others alive.
