Update: The movie will be released October 27th and here is the trailer.
American Sniper screenwriter Jason Hall is directing the movie from a script he adapted from David Finkel’s 2013 book Thank You For Your Service which followed the struggles of the battalion chronicled in Finkel’s The Good Soldiers during a 15-month tour or Baghdad during the surge of 2007 to 2008. The book was a near winner for the National Books Critics Circle Award.
Project Casting reports that DreamWorks acquired the movie rights to the movie prior to the book’s released.
Originally the plan was for Steven Spielberg to direct, with Daniel Day-Lewis possibly starring, but Spielberg reportedly suggested Hall helm the movie himself after reading the screenplay.
This will be the first movie for Miles Teller since Fantastic Four.
Thank You for Your Service is the latest movie to film in Atlanta, Georgia including Baby Driver, Middle School: The Worst Years of My Life, All Eyes on Me, and The True Memoirs of an International Assassin.
