Samuel L. Jackson, Sebastian Stan Join Political Drama ‘The Last Full Measure’
Samuel L. Jackson and Sebastian Stan have joined political drama “The Last Full Measure,” which begins shooting in Atlanta and Costa Rica later this month.
Todd Robinson is directing from his own script. Stan is in the lead role and the rest of the cast includes Christopher Plummer, William Hurt, Bradley Whitford, Michael Imperioli, and Linus Roache.
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 is seen saving the lives of over 60 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.
