‘Copperhead’ Set For June 28 Release (EXCLUSIVE)

Film Collective, Brainstorm handling simultaneous release

Ron Maxwell’s Civil War drama “Copperhead” has been set for a June 28 release simultaneously in theaters and on VOD through The Film Collective and Brainstorm Media.

Copperhead,” starring Billy Campbell, Angus Macfadyen and Peter Fonda, is produced and directed by Ron Maxwell, written by Bill Kauffman and exec produced by Bob and Susan Bishop of Swordspoint Prods.

The film is Maxwell’s third Civil War drama following 1993’s “Gettysburg” and 2003’s “Gods and Generals.”

Copperheads were Northerners who, believing that the Northern states could not win the Civil War, advocated a negotiated peace with the South. The story is based on Harold Frederic’s novel “The Copperhead,” in which a righteous farmer in upstate New York defies his neighbors and government in the autumn of 1862.

“There have been many stories of the American Civil War committed to film, but ‘Copperhead’ is unique,” said Ruth Vitale of The Collective. “I believe audiences will find the subject matter and themes that Ron’s film details relevant even today.”
