Veteran thesps Emily Watson, Peter Mullan, David Thewlis and Benedict Cumberbatch will support newcomer Jeremy Irvine in Steven Spielberg's adaptation of War Horse, a novel that focuses on a boy and his horse during World War I. Niels Arestrup, Celine Buckens, Nicolas Bro, David Kross, Leonard Carow, Rainer Bock, Robert Emms and Patrick Kennedy have also signed on.

The project comes as something of a surprise considering that Spielberg has been kicking around such high profile projects as a Lincoln biopic.
