Actor Joe Alwyn, who is all set to make his debut with Ang Lee's upcoming movie titled as Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk, states that the whole star cast of the film was taken to a boot camp for portraying the role perfectly in the movie.
"Seven of us did two weeks of boot camp in Atlanta. And that was a condensed version of what you would actually go through for boot camp," Alwyn stated.
Joe Alwyn will be seen playing a critical character of Billy Lynn, in the movie.
Lynn added, "So we had no contact to the outside world, we all lived together in this tiny little motel in Georgia and every day went through this training which was incredibly intense and tough and pushed us to breaking point."
"But also brought us together as a group of boys, made us come together as a unit." He continued.
Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk, directed by Ang Lee, is based
on the novel of the same name by Ben Fountain.
The story is set in the backdrop of war between Iraq and US. It is narrated through the view point of a 19-year-old boy Billy Lynn, played by Alwyn. The movie intends to bring forth the darker side of war and honour the war heroes.
The Sony Pictures Entertainment has acquired the film rights and is looking forward to a November release in India.
