‘Animal Kingdom’ Actor Anthony Hayes Joins ‘War Machine’ With Brad Pitt (EXCLUSIVE)

Australian actor Anthony Hayes is the latest to join Brad Pitt in Netflix’s “War Machine.”

Topher Grace, Scoot McNairy, Emory Cohen, John Magaro and Anthony Michael Hall are also on board, with “Animal Kingdom” helmer David Michod directing and writing. Netflix will open the film in select theaters next year as well as stream the film on its online service.

Pitt and his Plan B partners Dede Gardner and Jeremy Kleiner are producing with Ian Bryce.

Based on Michael Hastings’ book “The Wild and Terrifying Inside Story of America’s War in Afghanistan,” the story follows a general, played by Pitt, whose track record lands him the commanding job in the American conflict in Afghanistan.

Principal photography is scheduled to start this fall.

Hayes and Michod previously worked together on the 2010 Australian crime drama “Animal Kingdom.” Hayes is also known for his work in “The Slap” and “The Rover.” He will appear next in Derek Cianfrance’s “Light Between Oceans” to be released later this year.

He is represented by CAA, Gotham Principal, Australia’s United Agents and attorney Ryan Nord at HWHMF.
