Andrew Garfield has been cast in the upcoming war biopic “Black Lion.”

According to Deadline, the script for the drama will be written by Alessandro Camon. The film is inspired by the life and death of war correspondent Carlos Mavroleon. Garfield will also act as producer for “Black Lion,” and he will be joined by Rupert Fowler and Taplin Lundberg. Nicholas Mavroleon and Aidan Hartley will executive produce with Camon.

Meanwhile, Garfield has starred in multiple films before he was cast in “Black Lion.” Last year, Emma Stone’s ex-boyfriend took the lead role in the film “Silence.”

In an interview with TIME, Garfield dished on what it was like playing the role of a priest. “I was prepping for a year. I underwent this spirituality transformative process that St. Ignatius created – a retreat where you meditate and imaginatively walk with Jesus through his life, from birth to resurrection. My experience was very personal. Hopefully we’re dying on the cross every day and being resurrected in a truer way every day. That’s the idea, for me – the old self being shed in order for the truer self to emerge. I did a silent meditation retreat with Adam Driver in Wales. We were there for a week and we didn’t know each other. We’d had a beer in the West Village. Then next when we met each other I was sipping tepid soup in the middle of Wales in a retreat house in total silence,” he said.

Garfield’s other film, “The Amazing Spider-Man,” did poorly in comparison to the other films that also focused on superhero Peter Parker. According to The Guardian, Garfield was not cast in the upcoming 2017 “Spider-Man” film after the actor failed to attend an event in Brazil.
