It's based on a harrowing true story.
If you were sick of the fact that the last firefighter film of note was 1991's Backdraft(unless you count I now pronounce you Chuck and Larry which you really shouldn't ), then you're cure will come in the form of Only The Brave.The action drama had its first, gripping trailer released today.
Josh Brolin stars as the leader of an elite firefighting team called the Granite Mountain Hotshots. The Hotshots were a ragtag team that worked in the Arizona Fire department and specialised in battling raging wildfires. Miles Teller also stars as the young recruit Brendan "Donut" McDonough looking to sustain a future for his family. Other cast members include Taylor Kitsch, Jennifer Connelly and a typically gruff sounding Jeff Bridges.
Only the Brave is based on the true story of the Yarnell Hill Fire,a deadly incident in which a nearby, uncontrollable blaze threatened to decimate the town of Yarnell, Arizona. The film tells the story of those who dedicated ,and in some instance gave, their lives to protect the citizens in danger.
Joseph Kosinski (Tron:Legacy) directs a script from Ken Nolan (Black Hawk Down) and Eric Warren Singer.
