We chat with the cast of Thank You for Your Service
Universal Pictures and DreamWorks Pictures will release Thank You for Your Service, starring Miles Teller (Whiplash, The Spectacular Now), on October 27 and we got a chance to speak with the cast. We chatted with Teller, who plays Adam Schumann, a man who has just come back from Iraq and is dealing with the aftermath of his service, Haley Bennett (The Girl on the Train, The Magnificent Seven), who plays his wife, and Beulah Koale (The Last Saint), who plays his fellow soldier. We also spoke with writer/director Jason Hall and the real Adam Schumann, upon whom the story is based.

Thank You for Your Service follows a group of U.S. soldiers returning from Iraq who struggle to integrate back into family and civilian life, while living with the memory of a war that threatens to destroy them long after they’ve left the battlefield.
The film’s cast also includes Joe Cole, Scott Haze, Keisha Castle-Hughes, Brad Beyer, Omar J. Dorsey and Jayson Warner Smith. The drama is based on the best-selling book by Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter and author David Finkel.
Jason Hall, who wrote the screenplay of American Sniper, makes his directorial debut with Thank You for Your Service and also serves as its screenwriter. Jon Kilik (The Hunger Games series, Babel) produces the film, while Ann Ruark (Biutiful) executive produces.
