Russell Brand, Denis O’Hare, Ken Marino, Paul Scheer and Rainn Wilson have joined the cast of Army of One for director Larry Charles. Brand, O’Hare, Marino, Scheer and Wilson join the previously-announced Nicolas Cage and Wendi McLendon-Covey in the comedy from Endgame Entertainment and Condé Nast Entertainment that will be distributed in North America by Bob and Harvey Weinstein’s TWC-Dimension. Army of One was written by Scott Rothman and Rajiv Joseph and loosely based on a GQ article by Chris Heath.
Army of One, which is currently in production, is inspired by the true story of Gary Faulkner, a handyman from Colorado who receives a vision telling him to go to Pakistan to do what no one else can do, namely to capture Osama Bin Laden. So without any questions or skills, he follows his mission.
Dawn Ostroff and Jeremy Steckler of Condé Nast Entertainment, Emile Gladstone, and James D. Stern of Endgame Entertainment are all producers on the film. Julie Goldstein and Lucas Smith oversee day-to-day production for Endgame, and Patrick Newall is serving as executive producer.
FilmNation Entertainment is handling international sales for Army of One.
