Robert Patrick is set to star with John Travolta and Joaquin Phoenix in the firefighting drama Ladder 49, says Variety.
The project, to be directed by Jay Russell for Disney, sees Phoenix play a firefighter who's trapped in a blaze and looks back on his life. Patrick's character, a fireman with a perpetual chip on his shoulder, tries to save his comrade. Travolta plays a fire chief who acts as a mentor to the Phoenix character.
