THE YELLOW BIRDS has added Olivia Crocicchia to its already impressive cast. She joins previously announced Jennifer Aniston and Jack Huston in the adaptation of Kevin Powers novel of the same name.
The story is a look at the harrowing lives of two soldiers in Iraq and the effects of war on their families at home.
Tye Sheridan and Alden Ehrenreich star as the two lead soldiers with Huston as their sergeant and Aniston as Sheridan’s mother. Crocicchia will portray Tess, the ex-girlfriend of Ehrenreich’s soldier. Alexandre Moors is set to direct.
The film is produced by Cinelou Films, Mark Canton, and Courtney Solomon. Story Mining & Supply Co. will finance with Jeffrey Sharp and Evan Hayes producing and Jim Kohlberg executive producing for Story.
Crocicchia previously starred in Rescue Me as Katy Gavin and was most recently seen in Jason Reitman’s Hulu series Casual.
