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

    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.

    “I’m humbled to be making a big, bold movie about the whole sprawling, complex, cumbersome and crazy machinery of modern war and the many lives it touches,” Michôd added.

    “War Machine” follows Pitt, a four-star U.S. military general, patterned after Gen. Stanley McChrystal, determined to win the “impossible” war in Afghanistan.

    “War Machine is a rip-roaring, behind-the-facade tale of modern war decision-makers, from the corridors of power to the distant regions of America’s ambitions,“ Netflix COO Ted Sarandos said. “Brad and David are a perfect team to make this timely, compelling and entertaining film.”
