Long Gone Heroes tells the story of a special forces soldier for hire who’s given up country, religion, and even hope, and must return to the field of battle with his military team to track down a female reporter entangled in a huge political scandal while being hunted by the same mercenaries’ former comrades.
It comes as DDI is preparing to launch a slate of films in France including Think Like A Dog, starring Josh Duhamel and Megan Fox, The Doorman with Ruby Rose and Jean Reno, Becoming with Toby Kebbel and Penelope Mitchell, Sometimes Always Never with Bill Nighy, A Violent Separation with Brenton Thwaites and Alycia Debnam-Carey and Bella Thorne’s Girl.
“This is such a strong, engaging action script,” said Moring. “With Sir Ben and Guy leading the way, audiences are in for some excitement.”
