The film, which will be based on Marcus Luttrell’s book of the same name, will retell the true story of survival for a Navy SEAL team ambushed deep behind enemy lines in Afghanistan after being sent on a terrorist assassination mission. Bana, who joins Mark Wahlberg, Taylor Kitsch, Emile Hirsch and Ben Foster (Justin Timberlake was once set to star) is said to be stepping into the team’s leadership role as SEAL member Erik Christensen.
Bana, who was last seen in “Hanna” and “The Time Traveler’s Wife” before that currently has the crime thriller “Deadfall” set for release, and is serving as an executive producer on the upcoming “Jack Ryan” reboot starring fellow “Star Trek” cast mate Chris Pine.
Bana is repped by WME.
