A first official look at Nat Wolff and Alexander Skarsgard in The Kill Team, the upcoming action drama movie written and directed by Dan Krauss based on Krauss’ own 2013 documentary of the same name:
“A psychological thriller about a young American soldier in Afghanistan who struggles between his conscience and his survival when members of his platoon carry out a murderous scheme in the desolate wasteland of Southern Afghanistan.
Based on dramatic true events, THE KILL TEAM tells the story of a young American soldier trapped between his conscience and his survival when members of his platoon carry out a murderous scheme in the desolate wasteland of Southern Afghanistan.
Specialist Adam Briggman is an ambitious young soldier, whose quiet temperament and naive demeanour set him apart from his platoon. Everything changes when Adam meets his new squad leader, Sergeant Deeks, a towering man – fraternal, imposing, a man of principles – a natural born soldier. Adam immediately falls under Deeks’s spell.
But when a young Afghan farmer is killed under murky circumstances, Adam’s admiration for Deeks becomes increasingly tainted. Soon it is agonizingly clear that Deeks is enlisting his men in a scheme to murder innocents. Adam attempts to pull away from the group, but instead is dragged into a dangerous match of psychological warfare with his own brothers in arms.
Adam reaches out to his father for help in reporting the murders. But the effort fails. Out of options and with nowhere to run, Adam must face off against his once friends, ultimately forced to make an impossible split-second decision that will change him forever.”
Besides Alexander Skarsgård and Nat Wolff, the cast also includes Adam Long, Jonathan Whitesell, Brian Marc, Osy Ikhile, Rob Morrow, Oliver Ritchie, Andreas Karras, Elham Ehsas, Zackary Momoh, Ian Attard, Pedro Rudolphi, John De Luca, Taz Skylar, Edd Campbell Bird, Carlos Camino, and Steven Jeram.
