Jake Gyllenhaal has been roped in to play a war hero in the upcoming film, Combat Control, to be directed by Extraction filmmaker Sam Hargrave. 

Combat Control is based on the New York Times bestseller, Alone at Dawn, by authors Dan Schilling and Lori Chapman Longfritz. It focuses on the true story of American war veteran John Chapman, to be played by Gyllenhaal.

Hargrave and Shelby Malone will serve as associate producers on the project, while Gyllenhaal and Ryan Cassells are attached as executive producers.

Michael Russell Gunn has penned the screenplay of the film that will follow the story of Chapman, an Air Force Combat Control Technician (CCT) who died in battle during the War in Afghanistan. As there were no eyewitnesses to his actions, Air Force Captain Cora Alexander was tasked with investigating what happened to Chapman and proving that he was a worthy recipient of a Medal of Honor. 

Schilling, who also worked as a CCT like Chapman, will serve as a military consultant on the film.

MGM is in talks to acquire the project.
