Son of Rambow, We're The Millers, and The Maze Runner actor Will Poulter will reportedly star alongside Brad Pitt in Pitt's new Netflix movie War Machine.
Variety has the news, and they also confirm that Topher Grace, Scoot McNairy, Emory Cohen, John Magaro, and Anthony Michael Hall are all also on board in the story of a rock star general (Pitt) who is placed in charge of America's conflict in Afghanistan. Writer-director David Michôd (The Rover, Animal Kingdom) will be behind the camera on this one, and the movie will hit both the streaming platform and select theaters sometime next year.
In a surprise bit of casting, Poulter was recently set to play Pennywise the Clown in Cary Fukunaga's two-movie take on Stephen King's It, but since Fukunaga has left the project (Mama director Andy Muschietti recently took over), that casting may not stick. Still, Poulter will appear opposite Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hardy in The Revenant later this year, so even if all of this somehow falls through, he'll still be in what's likely to be one of the most-watched films of this year's award season.
