3 Join Mario Van Peebles' ‘Kerosene Cowboys’

Cam Gigandet, Shane West and Rachael Leigh Cook have signed on to star in the action thriller Kerosene Cowboys, directed by Mario Van Peebles for Svarog-Afterburner Films.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the story is based on a novel by Randy Arrington and follows the rough-riding and hard-living pilots of an elite Navy attack squadron. Gigandet will star as a hot-shot pilot, West plays his one-time best friend-turned-nemesis, while Cook will play an investigative journalist and Gigandet's love interest.

First-time scribe Adam Prince wrote the screenplay from a story by Dave Riggs and Nickolai Susby, who are producing via Svarog-Afterburner.

The movie is eyeing shoots in St. Petersburg, Russia, and the Naval Air Station Fallon in Nevada in October. Arrangements are being made for access to military hardware in the U.S. and Russia, with plans involving use of actual MiGs and Sukhoi aircraft.

No production date has been set.

Kerosene Cowboys was released in 2009.
