James Van Der Beek is set to star in Stone’s War, written and directed by acclaimed Finnish director Marko Makilaakso, reports Production Weekly.
In the film, formerly titled “War of the Dead,” Captain Martin Stone (Van Der Beek) is leading a finely-trained, elite platoon of American and Finnish soldiers as they attack an enemy bunker. Underestimating their enemy’s strength, they are quickly beaten back into the forest. As they try to regroup, they are suddenly attacked by the same soldiers they had just killed a few minutes earlier. Forced to flee deeper into Russian territory, they discover one of war’s most terrifying secrets and realize they have woken up a far more deadlier enemy.
Principal photography for the film will begin April 2nd in Lithuania.
