It’s an Avengers reunion: Samuel L. Jackson has signed on to join Sebastian Stan in The Last Full Measure.
Christopher Plummer, William Hurt, Bradley Whitford, Michael Imperioli and Linus Roache also star in the film from Todd Robinson (White Squall, Lonely Hearts).
Based on the true story of a present-day cover-up investigation, The Last Full Measure follows young Pentagon investigator Scott Huffman (Stan) 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, William Pitsenbarger, who is seen saving the lives of more than 60 Marines who were 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.
Foresight Unlimited is handling international sales and producing in association with Provocator and SSS Entertainment. Timothy Scott Bogart, Mark Damon, Lauren Selig, Julian Adams, Nicholas Cafritz, Robert Reed Peterson and Shaun Sanghani are producing, with Tamara Birkemoe, Jenna Sanz-Agero, Sidney Sherman, Louis Steyn and T.J. Steyn executive producing. Pen Densham and John Watson are co-executive producers.
Principal photography is set to begin later this month in Atlanta and Costa Rica.
“When I read Todd Robinson’s exceptionally moving script and heard the real-life interviews of the many men whom William Pitsenbarger saved, I felt this could be a great film. With the award-winning cast that has been assembled, I am now sure of it,” said Foresight Unlimited’s Mark Damon.
Stan is currently in production on Avengers: Infinity War for Marvel Studios/Disney and I, Tonya starring Margot Robbie, and has wrapped work on Steven Soderbergh’s Logan Lucky. He is repped by ICM Partners and Brookside Artist Management.
Jackson will soon be seen in Legendary’s Kong: Skull Island, which Warner Bros. is releasing on Friday, and The Hitman’s Bodyguard for Lionsgate in August. He recently wrapped Brie Larson’s directorial debut Unicorn Store. Jackson is repped by ICM Partners and Anonymous Content.
Plummer can next be seen in The Exception for A24 and The Man Who Invented Christmas for Bleecker Street in December. Hurt can currently be seen on the Amazon series Goliath opposite Billy Bob Thornton and will next be seen in Live Like Line opposite Helen Hunt. Whitford is in postproduction on Unicorn Store and Three Christs starring Richard Gere; he previously starred in HBO’s All the Way and can currently be seen in the Universal hit Get Out. He’s repped by ICM Partners and Greenlight Management and Production. Imperioli most recently starred on Fox’s Lucifer, and Roache on History’s Vikings and in Netflix’s Barry.
“Captain America: Civil War” actor Sebastian Stan has joined the cast of the Tonya Harding biopic “I, Tonya” starring Margot Robbie as the figure skater.
Miramax recently landed the rights to distribute the film. Craig Gillespie is directing. Robbie, who broke out in “Suicide Squad” this summer, will also produce along with Tom Ackerley through their Lucky Chap production company with Bryan Unkeless and Steven Rogers, who also wrote the screenplay.
Len Blavatnik and Aviv Giladi will executive produce for AI Film, which is financing the project. AI came on to the project in October.
Stan will play Jeff Gillooly, the estranged husband of Harding, who helped plot the attack on rival figure skater Nancy Kerrigan. Gillooly later revealed he and Harding’s bodyguard Shawn Eckhardt hired Shane Stant to break Kerrigan’s leg so she couldn’t compete in the upcoming 1994 Winter Olympics in Lillehammer.
Besides reprising his role as the Winter Soldier in “Captain America: Civil War,” Stan also has the Steven Soderbergh heist movie “Logan Lucky” coming out next year.
Stan is repped by ICM Partners and Brookside Artist Management. Deadline Hollywood first reported the news.
Actor Sebastian Stan participated in a question-and-answer session Saturday at the Wizard World Tulsa pop culture convention.
After walking on stage and being introduced amid audience squeals, Stan said he was in a “mystery city” he used to hear about on the TV series “Friends.”
“This is where Chandler got into all that trouble,” Stan said.
Chandler Bing, Matthew Perry’s character on “Friends,” was temporarily relocated to Tulsa for work during the series.
Topics during Stan’s panel:
•Asked what storyline so far is his favorite as an actor, Stan picked the Winter Soldier saga because there is still unexplored territory with the character, which has appeared in multiple Marvel films.
“We still need to go back and figure some things out there,” Stan said, indicating he would like to fill in some blanks in the Winter Soldier’s history.
Stan, asked by the moderator if he was dropping hints about a possible movie, said, “I wish. I’m apparently campaigning for it without even really realizing it.”
•Stan said being curious worked in his favor. He encouraged audience members to be curious. He said he was curious to find role models once he “clicked” with acting while in college. He read biographies and discovered that Steve McQueen and other successful actors had troubled pasts. He said rough patches in life may be gifts you can learn from.
“That’s almost every superhero story,” he said.
Fave biography? “I just read all the acting ones from Pacino to Brando to DeNiro to Steve McQueen,” he said.
“The problem for me is these people just totally seemed like they were gods. Everyone idolized them.”
But Stan said those actors didn’t start out that way. “We made them into gods,” he said. “They just found a way to make themselves available.”
•Stan said he (gasp!) hasn’t seen “The Walking Dead,” but he watches “Game of Thrones” and “Stranger Things.”
•Does Stan watch a lot of his own movies? “After consuming a lot of alcohol, I do,” he said, adding that it’s hard to watch your own movies and it gets easier after the passage of time “and have kind of moved on.”
•Stan was asked what the Winter Soldier’s last thoughts were when he was going back on ice at the end of “Captain America: Civil War.” On-stage joking between the moderator and Stan ranged from “my arm itches” to “should’ve had dessert.” Stan then surmised that the Winter Soldier is in a place of relief because, after being “followed by this shadow such a long time,” that the character can kind of “just chill.” No pun was intended.
Said Stan: “Who is to say that whatever they put him to sleep with doesn’t give him nice dreams?”
Daniel Craig, Channing Tatum and Hilary Swank are among those starring in the all-star heist movie.
Sebastian Stan, best known for playing the Winter Soldier in Marvel’s Captain America movies, has joined the all-star cast of Steven Soderbergh’s Logan Lucky.
Daniel Craig, Channing Tatum, Hilary Swank, Katherine Heigl, Adam Driver and Seth MacFarlane are among those on the call sheet of the NASCAR-set heist movie centered on two brothers.
The movie is currently shooting in Atlanta. Mark Johnson, Gregory Jacobs and Reid Carolin are producing.
Stan will play a three-time Sprint Cup Champion NASCAR driver who is coming back into the sport after time away.
With the new casting, the actor continues to ride a wave of success generated by Captain America: Civil War, one of the year’s more acclaimed movies, which has grossed more than $1.1 billion worldwide. Since that movie’s opening, Stan nabbed and wrapped a starring part in We Have Always Lived in the Castle, a thriller that also stars Taissa Farmiga and Alexandra Daddario.
The actor, who will appear in the indie I’m Not Here with Maika Monroe and J.K. Simmons, will shoot the next Avengers installment early next year.
Stan is repped by ICM Partners, Emily Gerson Saines of Brookside Artists Management and Lon Sorensen at Sloane Offer.
Today being August 13th marks Sebastian’s thirty-fourth birthday in which case I would like to wish Sebastian a very wonderful birthday. I hope it’s spent with a smile in your heart and laughter on your lips. Happy Birthday, Sebastian! xo
Sebastian Stan, best known for playing the Winter Soldier in Marvel’s Captain America movies, is set to star in We Have Always Lived in the Castle, an adaptation of the 1962 story by Shirley Jackson.
Michael Douglas is producing the creepy thriller with Jared Goldman, Robert Mitas and Robert Halmi, Jr., while Stacie Passon is in the director’s seat.
One of the better known stories by Jackson, a 20th century horror writer best known for her novel The Haunting of Hill House, the plot centers on an isolated family, which has already lost four members to poisoning, that uses rituals and talismans to keep itself away from hostile townspeople. Into this scenario arrives a distant cousin, intent on maliciously securing the family’s fortune and whose arrival sets in motion the uncovering of family secrets.
Stan will play the cousin, Charles Blackwood. Passon wrote the adaptation with Mark Kruger.
The feature, which is to begin shooting this month in Dublin, will be a Further Films in association with Great Point Media presentation.
This is the first time the story is being adapted for the screen. It was previously translated into a play as well as a musical.

While Sebastian Stan has been working consistently for the past decade—in movies like Black Swan and last year’s The Martian, and the TV shows Gossip Girl and Once Upon a Time—this summer he got a high-profile break with a vastly expanded role in the film Captain America: Civil War. As Bucky, Stan became a vital role to the latest chapter in the Marvel film series, starring alongside GQ Style cover Robert Downey Jr. and Anthony Mackie. And speaking of GQ Style, Stan tried on the season’s slickest sunglasses for the debut issue. We caught up with the actor last week on one of those perfect NYC spring days, the kind that give him anxiety, and talked social media, his relationship with the fashion community, and his thoughts on Bucky and Captain America’s rumored gay relationship.
GQ: Are you based in New York?
I am, I am. I’m seeing this beautiful weather right now. It’s so pretty it’s giving me anxiety.
Because I feel like I have to go live life, every day.
What do you do when it’s nice out, to take advantage?
Oh, the usual. Just run six miles, read a novel, go out until three. Everything. [laughs] I’m joking. Probably like five minutes of each of those things.
Can you just run around the streets?
Yeah, it’s New York. Nobody cares. I ran by the West Side Highway yesterday; it was fantastic.
Do you ever get double takes?
No, but today I did run into a fan on the street that I recognize from some of the conventions. Some of the fans are so loyal you end up seeing them again and again at different things. So I ran into her on the street, and you always think, Oh, hey. I thought I know you. But then you think…Is this really a coincidence? I never try to share my location, you know?
You mean on social media?
Yeah. Well, I was so against social media for such a long time, but now I can’t live without it.
You’re very active on Instagram.
It’s part of the world that we’re in now, it really is. I understand the way that it fits into my business, in all of our businesses. Like the other night at the CFDA Awards, where I went with Todd Snyder; it was a great opportunity. A) It was a fun night, and B) It’s a great partnership. And then I feel like you have to connect with fans; individual connection is important. It never used to be that way. It used to be—I’m talking 30, 40 years ago—the less people knew about you, the better, the more different roles you could play. There’s a pro and a con to the whole thing. What I find is that the individual connections you have with fans that transpire—once you get a great message or see some artwork, it’s really humbling. I see it as a plus in that regard.
You have a strong theater background. Will you be doing more of that anytime soon?
I love it. I wish I could do more of it. With theater, it’s about a more specific window. It comes down to availability. The commitment there is every night, eight shows a week, and I feel like it’s even more important to connect with the material and to really like what you’re doing, because you’re doing the same thing every night. So you’re looking for something like that, but that fits in a very specific window. It’s not easy to find that, but I’m always looking for it. Theater is the most challenging thing to do, it’s just you out there with no rope. You can’t call time out, you’re on a roller coaster.
You went to that famous theater camp, Stagedoor Manor, when you were younger. What was that experience like?
It was a magical, magical place. The time that I was there was a very particular time. First of all, there were no cell phones. The first thing they did when you get there is say you’re not allowed to contact your parents, you’re not allowed to contact your friends. There were no distractions. You were forced to embrace your environment. It breaks you out of your shell, and I ended up with some amazing friendships from there. I met my manager there, and we’ve been together for 17 years. It’s a really special place. It was heartbreaking saying goodbye and going home. It was fucking real, man. This was before Glee! This was like, are you at the cool table or not? Or at the respected table. There are always hierarchies and stuff—it’s just a product of those environments—but at Stagedoor, everyone was embraced. Continue reading
