Netflix, the world's foremost leader in streaming movies and television, will be bolstering its increasingly strong lineup of original content with Brad Pitt's upcoming satirical comedy War Machine.

Partnered with Australian writer and director David Michôd, War Machine will be the biggest feature-length film Netflix has signed into production. The story is based off the best-selling book The Operators: The Wild And Terrifying Inside Story Of America's War In Afghanistan, in which Pitt's character is said to resemble U.S. General Stanley McChrystal. The film will also be produced by his at Plan B Dede Gardner and Jeremy Kleiner, along with Ian Bryce.

"War Machine is a rip-roaring, behind-the-facade tale of modern war decision-makers, from the corridors of power to the distant regions of Americas ambitions," said Netflix CCO Ted Sarandos. "Brad and David are a perfect team to make this timely, compelling and entertaining film."

The film, which is set for release sometime next year, will also be shown in select theaters. Production for Netflix's largest project to date is set at around $30 million USD, with photography production beginning later this summer. According to Deadline, Netflix will be providing "130 percent" of the film's budget.

The news was released less than a week before the streaming service begins airing the beloved third season of Orange Is The New Black, one of its most successful shows. Watch the trailer for the third season below, which begins June 12th.
