Luke Grimes has recently been getting busy on the set of Fifty Shades of Grey, but that won’t be his only big movie of 2015, as he is in final talks to join American Sniper, which already has the likes of Bradley Cooper, Sienna Miller and Jake McDorman attached to star.
The action movie is based on the autobiography of Navy SEAL Chris Kyle (Cooper), a Texas native who racked up the most confirmed sniper kills of anyone in US military history.
However before he took the record, he was a rodeo cowboy. Tragically though, he was killed by a fellow veteran at a shooting range in February 2013 (it’s not clear if that will be included in the movie).
Grimes will play fellow SEAL team member Marc Lee.
Clint Eastwood is directing from a screenplay by Jason Dean Hall (Paranoia, Spread),.
