Beulah Koale Joins Miles Teller in DreamWorks’ ‘Thank You For Your Service’

Newcomer Beulah Koale has joined Miles Teller in DreamWorks’ PTSD drama “Thank You For Your Service,” sources confirm to Variety.

Haley Bennett will also star, with “American Sniper” scribe Jason Hall writing and directing the pic. Jon Kilik has come on to produce the film, which will be executive produced by Ann Ruark.

Based on the nonfiction book by David Finkel, the pic follows a group of U.S. soldiers who return from Iraq and struggle to integrate back into their civilian lives with their families, as they’re still haunted by the horrific memories of a war that threatens to destroy them long after they’ve left the battlefield.

Koale will play a Samoan American soldier raised on the streets who feels indebted to the military for making his life better.

This marks Koale’s first major studio film role; he has mainly worked in New Zealand television, appearing on past series such as “Shortland Street” and “Harry” opposite Sam Neil. He was also recently seen in the short film “Maurewa,” which was selected for Melbourne and Berlin film festivals.

He is repped by Red 11 Management. The news was first reported by theWrap.
