Deadline.com — Roadside Attractions is planning a wide 2019 theatrical release for Todd Robinson’s The Last Full Measure. The distributor has acquired U.S. rights on the Vietnam drama that stars Avengers: Infinity War‘s Sebastian Stan along with Christopher Plummer, William Hurt, Samuel L. Jackson, Ed Harris, Peter Fonda, Diane Ladd, Amy Madigan, Jeremy Irvine and Bradley Whitford.
The film recounts an untold story about the heroism of American soldiers in Vietnam. Irvine plays William Pitsenbarger, an Air Force medic who saved over 60 men in one of the harshest battles of the Vietnam War. Offered the chance to escape on the last helicopter out of the combat zone, Pitsenbarger stayed behind to save and defend the lives of his fellow soldiers. Twenty years later, his comrade in arms (Hurt) and father (Plummer) seek the help of investigator Scott Huffman (Stan) and other surviving veterans of the battle to finally procure him The Congressional Medal of Honor he deserved.
“Todd Robinson’s riveting drama chronicles one man’s sacrifice and valor on the battlefield, and we believe it also highlights an aspect of American patriotism overdue for recognition. Everyone should know about William Pitsenbarger’s bravery and life, and it’s a privilege to bring this film to theaters where it should be seen,” said Roadside’s Howard Cohen and Eric d’Arbeloff.
Robinson also wrote the script. Timothy Scott Bogart, Mark Damon, Nicholas Cafritz, Robert Reed Peterson, Shaun Sanghani, Michael Bassick, Adi Cohen and Lauren Selig are producers. Foresight Unlimited produced in association with Rainmaker Films, Lightbox Pictures, Provocator, SSS Entertainment and BCL Finance Group. The U.S. deal was negotiated by ICM Partners and Foresight’s Damon, while Roadside Attractions was repped by Cohen. Foresight has international sales.

Deadline.com — Captain America star Sebastian Stan and Colette actress Denise Gough are set to star in classy-looking feature Monday.
Produced by Christos V.Konstantakopoulos (Before Midnight) Damian Jones (The Iron Lady) and Brian Kavanaugh-Jones (Loving), Fred Berger (La La Land) will executive produce.
Faliro House and its partners will finance the project. Protagonist Pictures is handling international sales. Production is set for Greece this summer with Argyris Papadimitropoulos (Suntan) directing the script he co-wrote with Rob Hayes.
Pic focuses on two self-destructive Americans, living across Athens and the Greek islands who plunge into a tsunami of a romance.
Papadimitropoulos told us, “Many people don’t feel like getting involved in intense relationships anymore. And that to me is so sad. Chloe and Mickey’s story is a very honest look at one relationship, and in it there are elements everyone will recognize from their own experiences. I simply cannot wait to put the amazingly talented Denise and Sebastian in front of the lens and shoot them in stunning settings, places I know like the back of my hand, and work with a team of producers who have made some of my favorite films.”
Papadimitropoulos’s most recent feature Suntan premiered at Rotterdam Film Festival and SXSW’s Narrative Spotlight before winning best film at the Edinburgh Film Festival.
Hayes is known for his success as a screenwriter and playwright, with his most recent hit This Will End Badly performed in London and receiving critical acclaim.
Stan will next be seen starring opposite Nicole Kidman in Annapurna’s The Destroyer. His credits include Avengers: Infinity War, Captain America: Civil War and I, Tonya with Margot Robbie. Gough is a two-time winner of the Laurence Olivier Award for her roles in stage plays People Places And Things, and Angels In America, that latter for which she was also nominated for a Tony.

Tracking-Board.com — After years in development on both the big and small screens, a feature adaptation of Josh Bazell’s debut novel BEAT THE REAPER is finally coming together, as Sebastian Stan has signed on to star, while Gore Verbinski has signed on to direct, the Tracking Board has exclusively learned.
The project hails from New Regency and Appian Way, so Leonardo DiCaprio and Jennifer Davisson will produce alongside Julie Yorn of LBI Entertainment. The script was written by Billions creators Brian Koppelman and David Levien, who are also expected to serve as executive producers.
Beat the Reaper follows a young ER doctor whose life is upended when a patient recognizes him from his past life as a mafia hitman. He’s forced to fight to stay alive as old enemies come out of the woodwork to destroy him.
New Regency originally acquired the rights to the book when it was published in January 2009, and developed the feature film project as a starring vehicle for Leonardo DiCaprio. The project moved to HBO in December 2011, but not much has been heard about it since.
Stan is coming off the best performance of his career in I, Tonya, and he’ll soon be seen reprising his role as Bucky in Avengers: Infinity War and its 2019 sequel. Additionally, Stan will be seen alongside Nicole Kidman in Karyn Kusama’s crime thriller Destroyer, and he stars opposite Alexandra Daddario in We Have Always Lived in the Castle. He’s represented by ICM Partners, Brookside Artist Management and attorney Jason Sloane.
