Haley Bennett in Talks to Star With Miles Teller in ‘Thank You for Your Service’

Haley Bennett is in talks to join Miles Teller in post-traumatic stress disorder drama “Thank You for Your Service” for DreamWorks, sources tell Variety.

No offer is on the table but sources say one is expected and that Bennett is the top choice. DreamWorks had no comment.

“American Sniper” screenwriter Jason Hall is directing from a script he adapted from David Finkel’s 2013 book of the same name, which followed up the home-front struggles of the battalion chronicled in Finkel’s “The Good Soldiers” during a 15-month tour of Baghdad during the surge of 2007-08. The book was a finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award.

DreamWorks acquired movie rights to “Thank You for Your Service” prior to publication. No producers have been attached to the project.

Details are vague on Bennett’s role, though some say she will play a love interest of Teller’s.

“Thank You for Your Service” would be the latest project to see Bennett and DreamWorks work together. The studio previously cast her opposite Emily Blunt and Rebecca Ferguson in its highly anticipated adaptation of the New York Times best-seller “The Girl on the Train.”

Bennett also recently wrapped MGM and Sony’s remake of “The Magnificent Seven” opposite Denzel Washington, Chris Pratt and Ethan Hawke and was most recently seen in the hot Toronto title “Hardcore.”

She also has a role in Warren Beatty’s untitled biopic on Howard Hughes.

She is repped by CAA.
