Director David Michôd and star/producer Brad Pitt are rapidly gathering the acting troops they want to populate the world of War Machine, the military satire that has been handed funding and a home by Netflix. Topher Grace joined up last week and now they’ve reached out to someone they have both worked with in the past, Scoot McNairy.

Based on Michael Hastings’ book The Operators: The Wild And Terrifying Inside Story Of America’s War In Afghanistan, the film takes a darkly comic look at the handling of the conflict, with Pitt as a general loosely based on US military man Stanley McChrystal.

McNairy’s role has yet to be revealed, but it’ll reunite him with Pitt after **Killing Them Softly **(and, via Pitt’s Plan B production company, 12 Years A Slave) and Michôd, who directed him in The Rover. Michôd wrote the script and will call the shots on this one, which has a $30 million budget and should be on screens next year.

The actor most recently worked on **Sleepless Night **opposite Jamie Foxx and Michelle Monaghan and will be seen in political comedy drama **Our Brand Is Crisis **and DC superhero outing Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice, which brings its chin-rumble to screens on March 25.
