Jamie Foxx, John Leguizamo, Robert De Niro, and Scott Eastwood have all been cast in the indie action film Tin Soldier.
Brad Furman is directing the film based on his script he co-wrote with Jess Fuerst.
Tin Soldier tells the story of The Bokushi (Foxx), who preaches to hundreds of veterans who have been drawn to the promise of protection and purpose under him. Surrounded by his devout military-trained followers, he has built an impenetrable fortress and amassed an arsenal of weapons.
After several failed infiltration attempts, the government – in the form of military operative Emmanuel Ashburn (De Niro) – recruits Nash Cavanaugh (Eastwood), an ex-special forces asset, who was once a disciple of The Bokushi. Nash agrees to use his vulnerable past and insider knowledge of the enigmatic leader to finally get revenge on the man who took everything from him, including the love of his life.
Keith Kjarval via Unified Pictures, Steven Chasman from Current Entertainment, and Brad Feinstein via Romulus Entertainment will produce. Furman and Fuerst will also produce under their Road Less Traveled Productions banner. Blue Rider’s Walter Josten is executive producer.
Tin Soldier will begin filming next week in Greece.
