“A Bright Shining Lie,” Neil Sheehan’s Pulitzer Prize-winning account of the Vietnam War, will come to the screen under the auspices of Jane Fonda Films, Guber-Peters Co. and Warner Bros. Fonda will function in a key production position, as will Peter Guber and Jon Peters, the production team behind best-picture Oscar winner “Rain Man.” Warner Bros. will distribute the film, which will mark Fonda’s first venture as a producer of a movie in which she does not appear. Author Sheehan won a Pulitzer last month for his telling of the war with a focus on American Lt. Col. John Paul Vann.
