By | December 20, 2016

Jerry Bruckheimer’s upcoming film film Horse Soldiers is holding an open casting call.

According to the film’s IMDB page, Chris Hemsworth, Michael Peña and Michael Shannon are all starring in the film which is an adaptation of Doug Stanton’s book, “Horse Soldiers: The Extraordinary Story of a Band of US Soldiers Who Rode to Victory in Afghanistan.”

Horse Soldiers centers on the weeks following the 9/11 attacks and first group of Special Forces soldiers that went to Afghanistan after the 9/11 attack. The soldiers were sent in to find and dismantle the taliban. Upon arrival, they joined forces with local groups that also were fighting the Taliban in hopes of driving them out of their villages in the mountains. The US special forces team was tasked with finding a warlord hiding out in the rugged mountains which put them on a path through treacherous terrain and conditions.

Jerry Bruckheimer (Pirates of the Caribbean movies, Lone Ranger, Top Gun) is producing along with Molly Smith, Trent Luckinbill and Thad Luckinbill of Black Label Media.  Peter Craig and Ted Tally are credited as writers.
