Foresight Unlimited announced today that Academy Award Nominee Samuel L. Jackson (Kong: Skull Island, The Hateful Eight, Django Unchained) has joined the cast of The Last Full Measure from Emmy Award Winning Writer/Director Todd Robinson (White Squall, Lonely Hearts). 

Sebastian Stan (Marvel/Disney's Captain America franchise) leads the lauded cast, which includes Academy Award Winner Christopher Plummer (Beginners), Academy Award Winner William Hurt (Kiss of the Spider Woman), Golden Globe Nominee Bradley Whitford (The West Wing), Golden Globe Nominee Michael Imperioli (The Sopranos), and Golden Globe Nominee Linus Roache (Batman Begins, RFK).

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 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.

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, and Sidney Sherman executive producing. Pen Densham and John Watson are co-executive producers. 

Foresight Unlimited is handling international sales and producing in association with Provocator and SSS Entertainment. Principal Photography begins in Atlanta and Costa Rica later this month. 

Foresight Unlimited's Mark Damon said: "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."

Jackson can next be seen in Legendary Entertainment Kong: Skull Island which Warner Bros. is releasing on March 10 and The Hitman's Bodyguard for Lionsgate in August.  Jackson recently wrapped Brie Larson's directorial debut Unicorn Store.

Stan is currently in production on Avengers: Infinity War for Marvel Studios/Disney and I, Tonya starring Margot Robbie and post on Steven Soderbergh's Logan Lucky. 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 in the Amazon series "Goliath" opposite Billy Bob Thornton, and will next be seen in Live Like Line opposite Helen Hunt. Whitford is in post on Unicorn Store and Three Christs starring Richard Gere, he previously starred in HBO's All the Way, and can currently be seen in Universal Pictures' critically and commercially acclaimed Get Out.  Imperioli most recently starred in "Lucifer," and Roache in "Vikings" and Netflix's Barry.
