Emory Cohen Joins Brad Pitt and David Michôd’s “War Machine”


From Deadline:

Emory Cohen has enlisted in Netflix’s war on terror-themed black comedy War Marchine. Based on Michael Hastings’ best selling nonfiction book The Operators: The Wild And Terrifying Inside Story Of America’s War In Afghanistan, the film satirizes the handling of that war, and the people running it. Hastings, who died tragically in a 2013 car wreck, wrote the 2010 Rolling Stone story in which General Stanley McChrystal displayed open contempt for civilian authorities, including the president; McChrystal was forced to resign as a result of the ensuing fallout. Brad Pitt has already signed on to portray the film’s General McChrystal stand-in, and Cohen will play a member of the General’s platoon. Written and directed by David Michod, it’s produced by Pitt, along with Pitt’s Plan B partners Dede Gardner and Jeremy Kleiner, in association with Ian Bryce.”
