Gravitas will release “Beyond Glory” on all platforms in the fall. James Cameron, Jon Landau and Lightstorm Entertainment executive produced the project, which also features the voice talents of Gary Sinise.
“Stephen Lang’s inspiring tour de force of writing and acting brings to life a handful of this nation’s greatest real heroes, who now, with this film, pass firmly into legend,” Cameron said.
Lang, who portrayed the villainous Colonel Miles Quaritch in Cameron’s “Avatar,” began performing his one-man “Beyond Glory” stage show in 2004. He adapted the show — which depicts the eight veterans, each recalling how he earned his medal — from Larry Smith’s nonfiction book of the same name.
Larry Brand directed and edited the movie, which recently played at the festivals Tallgrass, FilmColumbia, Cinema on the Bayou and the Phoenix Film Festival, where it won the special jury prize for acting.
“‘Beyond Glory’ is a project very near and dear to my heart, and I am exceedingly pleased to be partnering with Gravitas on its release. With their creative expertise I know that our film will reach the widest possible audience,” Lang said.
CAA negotiated the deal on behalf of the filmmakers.
