BREAKING: James Cameron and Jon Landau have come aboard as executive producers of the recently finished film Beyond Glory, which was written by and stars Stephen Lang. The film, which is getting its narration from Gary Sinise, was directed by Larry Brand. With all of the heavy hitters coming aboard, it gives the film a marketing boost that will help any distributor.
Beyond Glory, which originally was adapted as a play by Lang from journalist Larry Smith’s book, has played onstage to civilian and military audiences since 2004. A production of 8180 Films, it blends performances from stages around the world, most notably nuclear carriers in the Persian Gulf, to recount firsthand accounts of World War II, Korea and Vietnam in the words of eight Medal of Honor recipients.
The film was produced by Rebecca Reynolds, Noah Lang, James Carpenter and Ross Satterwhite.
“There are many movie heroes but few movies about real heroes,” said Landau. “Beyond Glory is one of those movies. It is important to recognize and celebrate the sacrifices men and women make in service to our nation.”
Sinise added: “It’s my honor to help tell the amazing stories of eight of our country’s greatest military heroes in Beyond Glory. This film is a tribute to their service. It inspires, entertains and passes on to future generations the ideals and values the medal represents.”
