Josh Brolin and Miles Teller have nabbed the lead roles in No Exit for Black Label Media, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.

The firefighter action movie is also set up with Conde Nast Entertainment, as No Exit is based on a GQ magazine article, and producers Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Mike Menchel. Black Label Media, which backed Sicario in which Brolin co-starred, is financing the film.

Joseph Kosinski, the director behind Tron: Legacy and Oblivion, is directing the indie about the true story of the tragic wildfire in Prescott, Ariz. that killed almost an entire crew of firefighters in 2013.

Teller is coming off Fox’s reboot of Fantastic Four, in which he starred as Reed Richards/Mr. Fantastic. He just wrapped Arms and the Dudes, the Warners comedy with Jonah Hill and directed by Todd Phillips.

Known as the Yarnell Hill Wildfire and considered one of the worst firefighter disasters in American history, the true story behind No Exit caused the deployment of over 600 firefighters as it grew to over 8,400 acres. Nineteen of the 20-person crew perished when they became trapped due to fast-changing winds and 2,000-degree heat.

CAA, which reps Brolin and Teller, also has the distribution rights to No Exit.
