No Exit is heating up with the addition of Josh Brolin and Miles Teller.

The Hail Caesar leading man and the Whiplash breakout are poised to star in director Joseph Kosinski’s fact-based firefighting drama, sources confirmed to EW.

The film centers on the Arizona firefighters known as the Granite Mountain Hotshots and their efforts to quell the Yarnell Hill Fire of 2013, which proved to be one of the deadliest wildfires in American history. Nineteen of 20 crew members died battling the blaze.

Ken Nolan (Black Hawk Down) wrote the script for the film, which has not set a date for the start of production.

Brolin’s other upcoming films include The Legacy of a Whitetail Deer Hunter, Suburbicon, and the two-part Avengers: Infinity War, while Teller will be seen in The Divergent Series: Allegiant later this month and War Dogs in August. Kosinski previously directed Oblivion and Tron: Legacy.

Variety first reported the No Exit news.
