According to Variety, Emile Hirsch is rumoured to be in talks to join the already impressive cast associated with Peter Berg‘s Lone Survivor. If everything goes well, he will star alongside Mark Wahlberg, Taylor Kitsch, and Ben Foster.
The script is based on an adaptation of Marcus Luttrell‘s novel of the same name. It tells the harrowing story of how Luttrell and his Navy SEAL team members fought to stay alive after being ambushed by Taliban forces during a covert mission to kill a terrorist leader in Afghanistan.
Hirsch, who would play a member of the Navy SEAL team, is known for taking on dramatic roles, so whilst it might be nice to see him in something more light-hearted for a change, this part will definitely take advantage of his talent.
Furthermore, Wahlberg and Foster recently demonstrated their on-screen chemistry with the action drama Contraband, but it will be exciting to see how the rest of the cast plays off of one another.
