West, Gigandet Fuel Kerosene

Shane West, Cam Gigandet and Rachael Leigh Cook are in negotiations to join the action thriller “Kerosene Cowboys” for Svarog-Afterburner Films says The Hollywood Reporter.

Based on a novel by Randy Arrington, the tale 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.

Mario Van Peebles will direct from a script by Adam Prince and based on a story by Dave Riggs and Nickolai Susby. Actual MiGs and Sukhoi aircraft will be used in the project.

Filming will take place in St. Petersburg, Russia, and the Naval Air Station Fallon in Nevada in October.
