Miles Teller in talks for Jason Hall’s PTSD drama Thank You For Your Service

Thank You For Your Service Jason Hall Miles Teller Banner

Last month we brought you word that AMERICAN SNIPER writer Jason Hall is set to make his directorial debut with a movie adaptation of the David Finkel non-fiction novel Thank You For Your Service, and now The Wrap has learned that FANTASTIC FOUR and WHIPLASH's Miles Teller is in talks to star.

Hall is also writing the script for the Dreamworks film, which "follows three U.S. soldiers who return from Iraq and struggle to integrate back into their civilian lives with their families since they are still haunted by the horrific memories of war." Steven Spielberg was considering directing the PTSD drama, but after reading Hall's script, Spielberg suggested he direct it himself.

Teller doesn't have a deal in place yet, however insiders tell The Wrap that he "has been determined to tackle more serious material as he tries to move on from the media circus surrounding Fantastic Four and get back to focusing on work."

The actor has several upcoming films, including the INSURGENT sequel ALLEGIANT: PART 1, Todd Phillips' ARMS AND THE DUDES and Ben Younger's Vinny Pazienza biopic BLEED FOR THIS.
