What could be better than eagerly anticipating a film with one of your favorite stars? Anticipating a film with multiple stars that are on your radar! The Things They Carried, an upcoming Vietnam war movie has an ensemble cast that we never would have expected to see together. Though, without any proper introduction, we can already imagine how it’ll work. Let’s take a look at what we know so far.
The Things They Carried Has an Ensemble Cast Worth Looking Forward To
Tye Sheridan (Ready Player One, X-Men: Apocalpyse), Tom Hardy (Inception, Venom) Pete Davidson (Saturday Night Live, The King of Staten Island), and Bill Skarsgard (It, The Devil All The Time) will join Moses Arias, Ashton Sanders, and Angus Cloud on The Things they Carried. Rupert Sanders (Ghost in the Shell 2017) will direct.
The story is based on Tim O’Brien’s 1990 book of the same name. O’Brien’s collection of short stories tells tales of American soldiers during the Vietnam War. It is a semi-autobiographical novel, representing things that the author experienced during his time in the 23rd Infantry Division. What makes this book special is that it delves far beyond the typical “war” plot and spends more time representing raw, human emotion rather than brutal battle.

Meghan Hale is a graduate student living right outside of Toronto, Canada. She has always been the go-to gal for talking about anything film related and has a frustratingly long list of movie trivia up her sleeve. She is currently working on her first screenplay, as well as a horror novel, with the goal of publishing it while Stephen King is still around to read it.
