Jason Behr and Cam Gigandet have joined Oliver Stone's Vietnam War investigative thriller "Pinkville" for United Artists reports Reuters.

The story is based on the 1968 My Lai massacre that took place during the Vietnam War. Behr will play Lt. Stephen Brooks, the commanding officer in charge of the GIs at My Lai. Gigandet will play Fred Widmar, a soldier who is wracked with guilt and shame after witnessing the slaughter that day.

The pair join Bruce Willis, Channing Tatum, Woody Harrelson, Michael Pena, Xzibit and Toby Jones who've already been cast whilst Michael Pitt is being sought for the part of the infamous Lt. Calley, who was found guilty of ordering the massacre.

The project was postponed yesterday due to the writers strike.
