Emile Hirsch in talks for ‘Lone Survivor’

Peter Berg pic stars Wahlberg, Kitsch

Emile Hirsch is in early talks to take the last lead in Peter Berg’s “Lone Survivor.”

Mark Wahlberg, Taylor Kitsch and Ben Foster are already set to star with plans to shoot the movie this fall.

Emmett/Furla is financing the film with Universal Pictures distributing.

An adaptation of the book by Marcus Luttrell, Lone Survivor tells the harrowing story of how Luttrell and his Navy SEAL team members fought to stay alive after being ambushed in Afghanistan in 2005 by Taliban forces during a covert mission in the Hindu Kush mountain region, where the team went to kill a terrorist leader.

Hirsch will play a member of the team.

Berg and Sarah Aubrey will produce through their Film 44 banner along with Randal Emmett, George Furla, Akiva Goldsman and Barry Spikings.

The WME and The Collective repped Hirsch was most recently seen in Universal’s “Savages” and can be seen next in LD Entertainment’s “Killer Joe.”
