A pair of well-known actors are now expected to take the big screen together for a movie based on the Granite Mountain Hotshots who died in the Yarnell Hill wildfire.

Variety reports actors Josh Brolin and Miles Teller agreed to star in the film, which will be written by Ken Nolan. Nolan is the screenwriter behind the film “Black Hawk Down” and agreed to write the movie last summer.

The Prescott-based Granite Mountain Interagency Hotshot Crew lost 19 of 20 of its members on June 30, 2013. They were overrun by the Yarnell Hill wildfire about 30 miles south of Prescott.

The movie is expected to be titled “No Exit,” but a start date has not been given for filming.
