The film follows a team of Navy SEALS who were ambushed by insurgents in Afghanistan’s Hindu Kush mountains, leaving Luttrell on his own in the Afghani countryside as the lone survivor of the ordeal and with Taliban forces closing in on him. Ludwig will play SEAL member Shane Patton in the pic alongside Mark Wahlberg, Taylor Kitsch, Ben Foster, Emile Hirsch and Eric Bana.
Berg and Wahlberg will produce with Akiva Goldsman, Sarah Aubrey, Barry Spikings, Randall Emmett, Gerorge Furla and Stephen Levinson.
Ludwig is coming off the smash hit “Hunger Games” and had previously starred in “Race To Witch Mountain”, “The Seeker” and “The Sandlot: Heading Home”. He will next be seen in the comedy pic “Grown Ups 2”.
He is repped by ICM.
