Scott Eastwood to star in The Last Full Measure
Scott Eastwood is set to star in 'The Last Full Measure'.
The 30-year-old actor - the son of the legendary Clint Eastwood - will join the forthcoming based-on-the-truth thriller project as a Pentagon investigator, who unearths vital evidence of a cover-up and has to battle with the complicated political system in Washington to find the truth.
The movie will no doubt see viewers go through a mix of emotions as his alter-ego teams up with some Vietnam War veterans after it becomes known that heroic Air Force medic William Pitsenbarger, who sacrificed his life to save more than 60 fellow soldiers following an ambush during the conflict, should have been entitled to the Medal Of Honour.
But he missed out on the medal because the government seemingly covered up the incident on the sly.
Meanwhile, Eastwood isn't the only name attached to the movie as Ed Harris has also agreed to take on a starring role, while Laurence Fishburne and Morgan Freeman are currently still in negotiations with some of the producers.
The film, which is set to start rolling in September, will be directed by Todd Robinson - who will direct based on his own script taken from actual events - according to Deadline.
