Jamie Foxx, Robert De Niro, and Scott Eastwood to star in 'Tin Soldier'.

Jamie Foxx and Robert De Niro have been tapped to star in Tin Soldier, as part of a cast that also includes John Leguizamo (Encanto, John Wick) and Scott Eastwood. The film will be directed by Brad Furman (The Lincoln Lawyer, The Infiltrator) with a script co-penned by his frequent collaborator Jess Fuerst.

Foxx will be playing a character known as The Bokushi, a charismatic preacher who has amassed a following of hundreds of heavily armed veterans to defend his "impenetrable fortress." De Niro's Emmanuel Ashburn is the military operative charged with taking him down.

Brad Furman (The Lincoln Lawyer) is directing from his script with Jess Fuerst. Unified Pictures’ Keith Kjarval (Dragged Across Concrete), Current Entertainment’s Steven Chasman (Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw) and Romulus Entertainment’s Brad Feinstein (Bruised) will produce. Furman and Fuerst will also produce under their Road Less Traveled Productions banner. Blue Rider’s Walter Josten is executive producer.

"I am honored to be a part of the team behind such an ambitious, important and deeply personal work in Tin Soldier," Furman said. "With awe-inspiring settings and set pieces built for the big screen, this is an original story about struggle, sacrifice and the power of love and acceptance. To collaborate with a cast of this caliber is beyond humbling. The individual inspiration they have brought to each role is like nothing I have seen before. This has been an exciting journey and my hope is the film is even more exciting for audiences around the world."
