Orlando Bloom and Scott Eastwood have signed up to play two heroes of the war in Afghanistan in “The Outpost,” adapted from CNN host Jake Tapper’s 673-page complete history of the legendary Combat Outpost Keating, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The announcement comes six months after Deadline reported that “Red Platoon,” the memoir by Medal of Honor recipient and former Staff Sgt. Clint Romesha, would enter the canon of Global War on Terror films.

Both movies revolve around COP Keating, a fishbowl of a base at the bottom of three mountains in Nuristan province, built in 2006 to help stem the flow of Taliban fighters between Afghanistan and Pakistan, while supporting Provincial Reconstruction Teams in local public works projects.

It was named for 1st Lt. Ben Keating, 27, who had been stationed there and died in a vehicle rollover that year. He will be played by Orlando Bloom, 41, in “The Outpost.”
