WORLD WAR II FEATURE FILM BASED ON NEW YORK TIMES BEST-SELLER PEACE STARS ALEXANDER LUDWIG, SAM KEELEY, CHRIS BROCHU AND FRANCO NERO IN ENSEMBLE PERFORMANCE
Los Angeles, CA - September 24, 2020 - Fathom Events announced today a partnership with Brainstorm Media to bring Academy Award-winner Robert Port's (TWIN TOWERS, AGENT X) military thriller, RECON to theaters this November. Adapted from the critically acclaimed New York Times best-seller “Peace,” based on a true World War II event, by author Richard Bausch, RECON stars Alexander Ludwig (BAD BOYS FOR LIFE, THE HUNGER GAMES, "Vikings"), Sam Keeley (BURNT, "68 Whiskey"), Chris Brochu (DYNASTY, "Shameless") and Franco Nero (DJANGO UNCHAINED, JOHN WICK: CHAPTER 2). The film is produced by Rick Dugdale and Richard Bullock and executive produced by Maury Povich.
This exclusive event is scheduled to begin the night before Veterans Day on November 10, 2020, followed by a theatrical run starting November 13, 2020. Each screening will be accompanied by exclusive behind-the-scenes footage and interviews with the cast and crew.
RECON centers around four young men stationed in Italy in the midst of war. The action occurs over the course of one long day as they debate both their fates and that of life itself. As they struggle to make it off the mountain alive, these American soldiers face the worst that war can offer, and through this, each finds his own peace.
Writer/director Robert Port won an Academy Award for his film TWIN TOWERS, a documentary short about Detective Joe Vigiano, an elite New York City policeman who was killed during the tragic events of 9/11. RECON is Port’s feature debut which he wrote and directed.
Tickets and a list of participating theater locations will be available at www.FathomEvents.com.
