Samuel L. Jackson Joins Sebastian Stan’s in ‘THE LAST FULL MEASURE’
Samuel L. Jackson has joined Foresight Unlimited upcoming film, THE LAST FULL MEASURE.
From Emmy Award-winning writer/director Todd Robinson, the film stars Sebastian Stan, Christopher Plummer, William Hurt, Bradley Whitford, Michael Imperioli and Linus Roache.
Based on the true story of a present-day cover-up investigation, The Last Full Measure follows young Pentagon investigator Scott Huffman (Stan) as he battles the political machine in Washington. He reluctantly teams with veterans of Operation Abilene to convince Congress to award the Medal of Honor to a courageous Air Force medic, William Pitsenbarger, who is seen saving the lives of over 60 Marines ambushed in one of the bloodiest battles of the Vietnam War. As the battle waged on, and after the last helicopter left, he continued to save lives until his own was sacrificed.
Timothy Scott Bogart, Mark Damon, Lauren Selig, Julian Adams, Nicholas Cafritz, Robert Reed Peterson, and Shaun Sanghani are producing, with Tamara Birkemoe, Jenna Sanz-Agero and Sidney Sherman executive producing. Pen Densham and John Watson are co-executive producing. Foresight Unlimited are handling international sales and producing in association with Provocator and SSS Entertainment.
Mark Damon from Foresight Unlimited said:
“When I read Todd Robinson’s exceptionally moving script and head the real-life interviews of the many men whom William Pitsenbarger saved, I felt this could be a great film. With the award-winning cast that has been assembled, I am now sure of it.”
Production begins in Atlanta and Costa Rica later this month.
