Alexander Skarsgård and Nat Wolff join The Kill Team

It's certainly not every documentary director who is handed the chance to turn their factual film into a drama based upon the same subject. But that is what is happening with Dan Krauss' documentary The Kill Team (2013), with news arriving via Deadline that Alexander Skarsgård (The Legend Of Tarzan) and Nat Wolff (The Fault In Our Stars) are attached to the fictionalised adaption.

Krauss' film followed the story of Private Adam Winfield, a soldier in Afghanistan who discovered that members of his platoon were planning a murderous scheme while on duty. He enlisted his father's help to alert the military to the war crimes, but when his pleas went unheeded, he was left on his own, his life in danger and forced to choose between his morals and his safety. Wolff will be Winfield, while Skarsgård is the imposing Sergeant Deeks. Kraus is busy writing and preparing to direct the new movie.

"When we first saw Dan Krauss' documentary, we were shocked by this story and blown away by his direction," producers Marty Bowen and Wyck Godfrey (The Fault In Our Stars) tell Deadline. "His film's scope and tension, combined with these morally ambivalent characters, made it irresistible to watch."

Skarsgård is currently on our screens in War On Everyone and will next be in our cinemas with Duncan Jones' (Moon) Mute, which is shooting now. Wolff has worked on James Franco's (As I Lay Dying) In Dubious Battle and is part of the cast for Death Note, which will be out next year.
