Kosinski To Direct Firefighter Tale “No Exit”

“Tron: Legacy” and “Oblivion” director Joseph Kosinski is set to leave behind the sci-fi worlds of that film in favor of a new fact-based firefighting drama feature “No Exit” for Black Label Media.

The true story tale deals with one of the worst firefighting disasters in American history – a tragic wildfire in Arizona in 2013 that saw over 600 firefighters tackling a blaze that grew to 8,400 acres.

Due to fast-changing winds and 2,000-degree heat, all but one of a twenty-man wildfire fighting specialist team named Granite Mountain Hotshots perished.

“Black Hawk Down” scribe Ken Nolan is penning the script, while Lorenzo di Bonaventura, Mike Menchel, Dawn Ostroff and Jeremy Steckler will produce. Shooting could kick off as early as this Summer.
