Netflix has signed Will Poulter to star alongside Brad Pitt in the new film, War Machine. Coulter also joins Topher Grace, Scoot McNairy, Emory Cohen, John Magaro, and Anthony Michael Hall. Poulter stole the show in We’re The Millers and also starred in Fox’s Maze Runner and Grassland. This winter, he will star in The Revenant with Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hardy.

War Machine is based on Michael Hastings’ book, The Wild and Terrifying Inside Story of America’s War in Afghanistan. Pitt plays a general who’s performance gets him the commanding job in Afghanistan. David Michod is set to direct and write the film, with Pitt and his Plan B partners and Ian Bryce producing.

The film begins principal photography this fall. Netflix will not only stream the movie online, but will release it to select theaters next year.
