Los Angeles - Josh Brolin and Miles Teller have joined the cast of fire-fighter movie No Exit.

The 48-year old actor and the 29-year-old Whiplash star have joined the cast of the action title that tells the true story of the Granite Mountain Hotshots, who were a team within the Prescott Fire Department tasked with battling one of the deadliest wildfires in the history of Arizona.

The film will follow the story of the brave group that were sent into action in June 2013 to tackle the Yarnell Hill Fire, which threatened to consume the Arizona town of Yarnell.

In the searing heat and changeable weather conditions, the fire turned especially deadly, and 19 of the 20 men were killed.

It represented the greatest loss of life for fire-fighters in a wildfire since 1933, was the deadliest wildfire of any kind since 1991, and the department suffered the greatest loss of life in the United States since fire-fighters were sent in to clear the fires that raged New York City in the wake of the terrorist attack on the Twin Towers on September 11, 2001.

Black label is financing the film which will be directed by Tron: Legacy's Joseph Kosinski.

A start date for production is yet to be announced.

Meanwhile, Josh can be seen in cinemas in the Coen brothers' black comedy Hail, Caesar!.

He's also just finished shooting The Legacy of a Whitetail Deer Hunter opposite Danny McBride and is set to partner again with his 'Hail Caesar!' co-star George Clooney, on the actor's next directorial effort 'Suburbicon'.

And Miles will be on screens next month with The Divergent Series: Allegiant.

He is currently filming the PTSD drama Thank You For Your Service at DreamWorks.
