Sylvester Stallone is set to direct and star opposite Adam Driver in Tough as They Come. The film is based on the Travis Mills memoir.

The drama tells the true tale of U.S. Army Staff Sgt. Mills, one of only five soldiers to survive a quadruple amputation from a battlefield injury. At the heart of the story is the soldier’s relationship with his father-in-law, who stood by his side from the day he got home from the hospital. According to Deadline, Driver will play Mills, and Stallone will play his father-in-law.

Thousands of soldiers die year to defend their country. United States Army Staff Sergeant Travis Mills was sure that he would become another statistic when, during his third tour of duty in Afghanistan, he was caught in an IED blast four days before his twenty-fifth birthday. Against the odds, he lived, but at a severe cost Travis became one of only five soldiers from the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq to survive a quadruple amputation.

Susan Carlson, Eric Carlson and James Keach will produce.
