Approaching Midnight is directed, written, and directed by Sam Logan Khaleghi. Khaleghi chose to film Approaching Midnight in Michigan because he loves the state and wanted to feature the amazing architecture and geography.[2] American Legion members were a part of making the film as they stood in as extras and an American Legion honor guard appears in the film.[3]


Approaching Midnight was filmed in Detroit, Farmington, and West Bloomfield, Michigan. The war sequences in the movie were filmed in Milan near Ann Arbor.[4]


In July 2013, Monterey Media bought the United States distribution rights and will release the film in the United States in Fall 2013.[5] Approaching Midnight had its world theatrical premiere on August 27, 2013 at Emagine Royal Oak.[4] The film was also released at the American Legion National Convention in Houston, Texas.[3]
