Tugend, Clark predict ‘Rain’

Drama based on story of only American child to die in Vietnam

Marking her departure from the family film genre, producer Jennie Lew Tugend (the “Free Willy” films) has teamed with Dan Clark to tackle the heavy drama “Buddha Rain.”

Described as a coming of age drama, the true story deals with the only American child to die in Vietnam during the Vietnam War.

Clark, formerly “Nitro” of the “American Gladiators,” penned the script after optioning the story from the family.
