British actor Will Poulter, last seen starring alongside Jack Reynor in Gerard Barrett’s ‘Glassland,’ has become the latest addition to the cast of filmmaker David Michôd’s upcoming Netflix black comedy ‘War Machine.’

Headlined by Brad Pitt, the film is based on Michael Hastings’ book ‘The Wild and Terrifying Inside Story of America’s War in Afghanistan’ and follows a four star, “rock star” general whose lethal reputation and impeccable track record vaults him to command the American war in Afghanistan.

‘War Machine’ is scheduled to begin principal photography in the autumn with Topher Grace, Scoot McNairy, Emory Cohen, John Magaro and Anthony Michael Hall also starring.

Poulter will next appear opposite Leonardo DiCaprio, Tom Hardy, and Domhnall Gleeson in Alejandro González Iñárritu’s ‘The Revenant’ when it arrives in Irish cinemas January 2016.
