With filming about to begin, THR is reporting that Only the Brave co-stars Josh Brolin and Miles Teller have signed on for roles in Flag Day, the latest directorial effort from Sean Penn.
The film has been scripted by Tony-winning playwright Jez Butterworth and is based on Jennifer Vogel’s memoir Flim-Flam Man: The True Story of My Father’s Counterfeit Life. It tells the story of “a daughter that has to come to terms with her perceptions of her criminal father, a bank robber and career counterfeiter that evaded arrest for six months.”
In addition to directing, Penn will also star in the film alongside his daughter Dylan and son Hopper, while the cast also includes Norbert Leo Butz (Luce), Dale Dickey (Hell or High Water), Eddie Marsan (Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs and Shaw), Bailey Noble (True Blood) and Katheryn Winnick (Vikings).
