Chris Hemsworth is set to star in Nicolai Fuglsig's war drama Horse Soldiers

Fuglsig is helming from a script by Peter Craig and Ted Tally, which they based on Doug Stanton's book "Horse Soldiers: The Extraordinary Story of a Band of US Soldiers Who Rode to Victory in Afghanistan".

Oscar and Golden Globes-nominated actor Michael Shannon (Revolutionary Road, 99 Homes) is also joining Hemsworth on the cast. 

The film tells the true story of team of CIA agents and special forces who were deployed to Afghanistan in the aftermath of the September 11th attacks in an attempt to dismantle the Taliban.

According to Deadline, who broke the news, the film is being co-financed by Black Label Media, whose Molly Smith, Trent Luckinbill and Thad Luckinbill are producing with Jerry Bruckheimer and his Jerry Bruckheimer Films banner, where Chad Oman will be executive producer.

Congrats, Chris!
