Nat Wolff (“The Fault in Our Stars”) and Alexander Skarsgard (“Battleship”) are set to star in Dan Krauss’ feature film adaptation of his documentary “The Kill Team” for Temple Hill Entertainment.
The true story tale follows a young American soldier trapped between his conscience and survival when members of his platoon carry out a murderous scheme in the wasteland of Southern Afghanistan.
Wolff will portray Specialist Adam Winfield, an ambitious young soldier, who falls under the spell of a charismatic new squad leader (Skarsgard). But when a young Afghan farmer is killed under murky circumstances, his admiration becomes increasingly tainted and he’s soon dragged into a dangerous match of psychological warfare with his own brothers in arms.
Marty Bowen and Wyck Godfrey will produce. Pre-production is now underway.
