Scott Eastwood and Ed Harris are set while Laurence Fishburne and Morgan Freeman are in final negotiations to star in “The Last Full Measure” which is being penned and directed by Emmy Award winner Todd Robinson (“The Legend of Billy the Kid”).
Based on the true story of a present day cover-up investigation, the story follows young Pentagon investigator Scott Huffman (Eastwood) 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 who sacrificed his life saving more than sixty soldiers in the Vietnam War.
Lauren Selig, John Watson, Pen Denham, Julian Adams, Howard Brud and Mark Damon will produce and shooting begins in September.
Eastwood will appear later this summer in “Suicide Squad,” this Fall in “Snowden,” potentially later this year in Warren Beatty’s still untitled Howard Hughes film, and has a key role in “Fast 8” which is currently shooting.
