Halftime Soldier

Furious Seven’s Vin Diesel’s gonna help power Ang Lee’s next film.

Read that right....

Diesel is thisclose to nabbing a role in Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk, the adaptation of the Ben Fountain about how a few minutes of firefight in Iraq transformed the lives of eight men and how that event led to the titular characters titular walk at the Dallas Cowboys stadium one Thanksgiving Day (the man who voiced Groot in Guardians of the Galaxy would play one of em soldiers).

The powers that be already rounded up newcomer Joe Alwyn, Garrett Hedlund, Steve Martin, and Kristen Stewart for the film’s cast. Chris Tucker’s also coming on board, as a movie producer keen on bringing the soldiers’ story to the silver screen.
