Jeremy Irvine, Ethan Russell, Zach Roerig and Cody Walker have joined the cast of Todd Robinson’s upcoming military drama, THE LAST FULL MEASURE.

Robinson directs from his own script. Production has wrapped in Atlanta and is moving to Thailand where the younger cast members will spend a week in boot camp in order to prepare for battle while studying the recently shot footage of their older version characters.

Also starring Ser’Darius Blain, William Hurt, Sebastian Stan, Samuel L. Jackson, Peter Fonda, Amy Madigan, Christopher Plummer, John Savage, Bradley Whitford and Michael Imperioli.

A Foresight Unlimited production, with Timothy Scott Bogart, Mark Damon, Lauren Selig, Julian Adams, Nicholas Cafritz, Robert Reed Peterson and Shaun Sanghani producing.

Stan plays a Pentagon investigator who reluctantly teams with veterans of the 1966 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 ambused 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.

Irvine will play Pitsenberger. Russell will play a younger version of Hurt’s character, with Roerig playing a younger version of Harris’ character. Walker (the younger brother of the late Paul Walker) plays a younger version of Savage’s character.
