Los Angeles, Oct 9 (IANS) Actors Henry Cavill and Luke Evans will co-star with Nicholas Hoult in the upcoming war drama “Sand Castle”.
The film will be directed by Fernando Coimbra, who helmed several episodes of “Narcos”, with Chris Roessner penning the script, reports variety.com.
The movie is based on Roessner’s experience as a machine-gunner in Iraq’s Sunni Triangle.
The story centres on Matt Ocre (Hoult), who is part of a mission to repair a broken water system in the dangerous and unstable Iraqi village of Baqubah.
While the people of Baghdad welcome the Americans as saviours, the villagers resist their presence and Matt and his unit must try to convince the community that they are part of the solution, not the problem, in order to save the town and get out alive.
