In the summer of 2013, a wildfire broke out in the state of Arizona- ignited by lightning. What would become known as the “Yarnel Hill Fire” raged on for nearly two weeks. Along the way, it claimed the lives on 19 City of Prescott firefighters. That deadly fire will form the basis for the filmNO EXIT, which will be directed by Joseph Kosinski (TRON: LEGACY). The film has now added a couple of stars to its cast.

According to Variety, Josh Brolin and Miles Teller have signed on to play two of the firefighters, who went by the nickname the Granite Mountain Hotshots. The film will focus on the team’s efforts to contain the fire before it could consume an entire town.

Ken Nolan (BLACK HAWK DOWN), is developing the story on spec with the film’s producers. 

As of now, production on NO EXIT has no start date.
