Marvel Studios regulars Samuel L. Jackson and Sebastian Stan have joined the Todd Robinson-directed political drama “The Last Full Measure” which begins shooting in Atlanta and Costa Rica later this month.
Stan portrays 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 saved the lives of over sixty 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. Robinson is directing from his own script while Christopher Plummer, William Hurt, Bradley Whitford, Michael Imperioli, and Linus Roache also star.
Timothy Scott Bogart, Mark Damon, Lauren Selig, Julian Adams, Nicholas Cafritz, Robert Reed Peterson, and Shaun Sanghani will produce.
