‘Chronicle’ Star Alex Russell Joins Miles Teller in Firefighter Film ‘Granite Mountain’ (EXCLUSIVE)

Alex Russell is joining Miles Teller and Josh Brolin in Lionsgate and Black Label Media’s firefighter pic “Granite Mountain.”

Originally titled “No Exit,” the film also stars Jeff Bridges, James Badge Dale and Taylor Kitsch.

“Tron: Legacy” helmer Joseph Kosinski will direct the film, which follows the Granite Mountain Hotshots, a group of firefighters that faced one of the deadliest wildfires in history in order to save an Arizona town, resulting in the tragic death of 19 crew members. Kitsch and Bridges will play firefighters in the film.

Ken Nolan developed the story on spec with the producers.

Lorenzo di Bonaventura, Erik Howsam, Conde Nast Entertainment’s Jeremy Steckler and Dawn Ostroff, Mike Menchel, Black Label Media’s Molly Smith, Trent Luckinbill and Thad Luckinbill are producing the film. Black Label is financing.

Di Bonaventura also has “Deep Water Horizon” on the pipeline with Lionsgate.

Lionsgate saw strong international sales while shopping territory rights at the Cannes Film Festival.

Russell recently completed shooting Greg McLean’s “Jungle” with Daniel Radcliffe which was shot on location in Queensland, Australia. He also stars in Iven Sen’s “Goldstone” and recently launched his own production company Five Lip Films.

He is repped by UTA, Mosaic and United Management.
