Emile Hirsch Signs on for ‘Lone Survivor’

Emile Hirsch joins Lone SurvivorEmile Hirsch is in early talks to star in Lone Survivor for Universal Pictures and director Peter Berg. We reported back in February that Mark Wahlberg, Ben Foster, and Taylor Kitsch will star, with Emile Hirsch landing the last lead role.

The project is based on the memoir by Navy SEAL Marcus Littrell, that tells his harrowing journey of survival when he and his SEAL team members were ambushed by the Taliban in Afghanistan. The SEALS were pinned down in the Hindu Kush mountains, while on a mission to eliminate a terrorist. Mark Wahlberg is playing Littrell, with Ben Foster, Taylor Kitsch, and Emile Hirsch playing other SEAL team members.

Peter Berg is directing from his own adapted screenplay. He will also produce alongside Sarah Aubrey, Randall Emmett, George Furla, Akiva Goldsman, and Barry Spikings.

No production schedule was released.

Lone Survivor was released December 27th, 2013.
