“Ain’t nobody comes back from up there,” his character is told.

Sienna Miller stars as his wife and Tom Holland portrays his son. Robert Pattinson is his aide. James Gray directed the film from his own adaptation of David Grann’s 2009 nonfiction book of the same name.
Brad Pitt, Dede Gardner and Jeremy Kleiner are producing through their Plan B Entertainment along with Dale Johnson and Anthony Katagas. Marc Butan is exec producing with MICA Entertainment’s Julie B. May and Glenn Murray.
