Josh Brolin and Miles Teller are about to feel the heat.
The two actors have been cast in No Exit, an upcoming action-drama set to tell the true story of a team of American firefighters.
Variety broke the news, reporting that Brolin and Teller will be taking on lead roles in a film about the Granite Mountain Hotshots, a group of firefighters that went head to head with huge wildfires that threatened a town in Arizona. Tragically, 19 firefighters lost their lives during the mission.
Tron: Legacy and Oblivion director Joseph Kosinski is at the helm of the picture, which comes thanks to a spec developed by Black Hawk Down scribe Ken Nolan and the project’s producers.
It certainly sounds like the right type of movie for Nolan to jump on, with Ridley Scott’s Black Hawk Down perfectly showcasing the writer’s ability to pen a script about men caught in a horrible situation. Add Brolin, Teller, and Kosinski, who steps away from the sci-fi elements of his previous two features, and we’ve got a very intriguing project. We’ll keep you informed.
Brolin recently played a lead role in Hail, Caesar!, the latest film from the Coen brothers, and will next be seen alongside Danny McBride and Scoot McNairy in The Legacy of a Whitetail Deer Hunter, a comedy from Observe and Report director Jody Hill.
Next up for Teller is Get a Job; The Divergent Series: Allegiant; Bleed for This, a biopic on World Champion Boxer Vinny Pazienza; and War Dogs, a true-story comedy-thriller co-starring Jonah Hill.
