While we get plenty of movies about cops, firefighters don’t get the big screen treatment as often as their blue-uniformed counterparts. Perhaps it’s because the very nature of their profession requires big set pieces to dramatically capture the blazing, fiery risks they take on a day-to-day basis, and the budgets to back that up. But a new project is in the works that will see two big starts suit up to face off against nature.
Variety reports that Miles Teller and Josh Brolin will star in “No Exit.” Penned by Ken Nolan, who knows something about peril as the writer of “Black Hawk Down,” with “Tron: Legacy” and “Oblivion” helmer Joseph Kosinski set to direct, the movie tells the true story the Granite Mountain Hotshots, a firefighting team that risks their lives to save an Arizona town from a wildfire.
There’s no production start date for this one, but the appeal of the material is pretty clear, and it’ll be interesting to see who crews up with Teller and Brolin.
