Mel Gibson’s WW2 Drama ‘Hacksaw Ridge’ Lands Financing

Cross Creek Pictures has partnered with Demarest Media and Kilburn Media to produce and finance Mel Gibson’s World War II drama “Hacksaw Ridge,” starring Andrew Garfield.

The film, currently shooting in Australia, centers on the real-life story of Desmond T. Doss, a medic and the first conscientious objector (someone who claims the right to refuse military service) to win the Congressional Medal of Honor for saving dozens of soldiers during the Battle of Okinawa. Sam Worthington, Hugo Weaving, Vince Vaughn, Luke Bracey and Teresa Palmer also star.

The film will be distributed in the U.S. by Lionsgate/Summit and internationally by IM Global.

Demarest Media founder and CEO William D. Johnson is producing along with executive producer David Greathouse, who is overseeing production on-set in Sydney alongside Cross Creek’s Jason Seagraves. Mark Manuel and Ted O’Neal are serving as executive producers on behalf of Kilburn Media, as well as Buddy Patrick on behalf of Windy Hill Pictures.

Brian Oliver and Tyler Thompson are producers for Cross Creek. Bill Mechanic, David Permut, Bruce Davey, Paul Currie and Terry Benedict are also producers.
