Premise[edit]

Fifty-three years after his death, Airman William H. Pitsenbarger, Jr. ("Pits") is awarded the nation's highest military honor for his actions on the battlefield.[2]

Cast[edit]

Production[edit]

It was announced in May 2016 that Scott Eastwood and Ed Harris had been cast in the film, with Laurence Fishburne and Morgan Freeman in negotiations.[3] By March 2017, Eastwood was no longer involved, and the film added Samuel L. Jackson, Sebastian Stan, Christopher Plummer, William Hurt, Bradley Whitford, Michael Imperioli, Linus Roache, John Savage and Diane Ladd to its cast. Filming was set to begin between Atlanta and Costa Rica later that month.[4] Grant Gustin and LisaGay Hamilton were cast as production commenced, with Amy Madigan and Peter Fonda joining in April.[5][6][7]

In August 2017, filming concluded in Atlanta and would move to Thailand, with Jeremy Irvine (replacing Gustin in his role), Ethan Russell, Ser'Darius Blain, Cody Walker, Julian Adams, Tommy Hatto and Zach Roerig cast in the film.[8][9][10][11]

Roadside Attractions acquired the distribution rights to the film in September 2018, with an early 2019 release date eyed.[12] It is scheduled to be released on October 25, 2019.[13]
