Vin Diesel and Chris Tucker will appear in new Ang Lee movie.

Vin Diesel and Chris Tucker are the latest Hollywood superstars to be cast in Ang Lee's war drama Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk.

The three-time Academy Award-winning director is bringing Ben Fountain's 2012 novel to the big screen.

Newcomer Joe Alwyn will have his first major role in Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk as the title character, a US soldier whose unit is brought home from Iraq for a heroic 'Victory Tour'.

The film will follow Billy and his harsh drill sergeant (Garrett Hedlund) in their final 24 hours in the US as they attend a football game before being shipped back to Iraq.

Kristen Stewart is appearing in the film as Billy's sister, while Steve Martin will make his big-screen comeback to play a Hollywood dealmaker angling for the rights to Billy's story.
