LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) – After months of searching, “Boys Don’t Cry” director Kimberly Peirce has found her leading man for the Iraq war drama “Stop-Loss.”
Ryan Phillippe is in negotiations to star in the Paramount film, playing a soldier who returns home to Texas and is called to duty again in Iraq through the military’s “stop-loss” procedure. The soldier then refuses to return to battle.
Gee, I wonder how that one is going to turn out?
