Three big-name actors will be starring in Ron Howard‘s new movie!

Viggo Mortensen, Colin Farrell, and Joel Edgerton have signed on to star in the 67-year-old director’s new movie 13 Lives, Deadline reports.

Here’s the synopsis for 13 Lives: “The film tells the true story of the rescue of twelve boys and their soccer coach from a flooded, impenetrable cave system in Thailand in 2018. Thai families, the government, and a community of farmers and neighbors came together alongside volunteers from around the world to get them out of the Tham Luang Nang Non cave system in Chiang Rai Province. Among the volunteers were veteran British cave divers John Volanthen, Richard Stanton, Jason Mallinson, Chris Jewell, Josh Bratchley, Connor Roe, and Vernon Unsworth; Australian cave diver Dr. Richard Harris and Thai native Thanet Natisri. The harrowing 18-day ordeal made headlines around the world. Thirteen Lives shares their story.”
