“Dear White People” star joins Bradley Cooper in “American Sniper”

PanARMENIAN.Net - Fresh off the hit Sundance movie “Dear White People,” Kyle Gallner has been cast alongside Bradley Cooper in Clint Eastwood's “American Sniper”, TheWrap reported.

Eastwood is directing the Warner Bros./Village Roadshow war drama from a script by Jason Hall. Cooper is producing through his 22nd and Indiana banner, along with Eastwood, Robert Lorenz, Andrew Lazar and Peter Morgan. Village Roadshow Pictures is co-producing as well as co-financing with Warner Bros., whose Jon Berg will oversee the project for the studio. Production starts next month in Morocco.

Cooper stars as decorated Navy SEAL Chris Kyle, who is credited with the most sniper kills in U.S. military history.

Gallner will play Winston, an Arkansas native who earns the nickname “Goat” when his first kill in Iraq is an errant goat.

Jake McDorman, Luke Grimes and Cory Hardrict will play Cooper's comrades, while Sienna Miller will play his wife. The film is also expected to co-star several real-life Navy SEALs, including Kyle's friend Kevin “Dauber” Lacz.

Gallner will soon be seen in the well-received Sundance feature “Dear White People,” which was just picked up by Lionsgate and Roadside Attractions. He recently played Lou Reed in “CBGB” and co-starred in WB/Alcon's “Beautiful Creatures.” Upcoming films include Courteney Cox's “Just Before I Go” and the indie movie “Zen Dog.”
