Garret Dillahunt, Tom Felton and Jake Abel will star in The American Film Company’s WWII thriller, set to begin shooting on Apr 15 in Mexico.

The American Film Company president Brian Falk will make his feature directorial debut and co-wrote the screenplay with Mark David Keegan based on the true story of three Navy airmen lost at sea during WWII. The American Film Company and Mark Moran are producing.

“I’ve always been attracted to true stories that showcase ordinary people in extraordinary situations,” said The American Film Company CEO Joe Ricketts, who also serves as executive producer.

“The men in Ghosts Of The Pacific faced seemingly insurmountable odds and yet they never gave up. They were America’s first heroes of the Pacific war.”

Principal photography will take place at Baja Studios in Rosarito.
