The trailer for an epic new wartime film called “The Great War” was just released, and it features Greek-American actor Billy Zane as a battle-scarred WWI soldier. You can watch the full trailer above.
“The Great War” tells the story of a troop of black “Buffalo Soldiers” during WWI who become trapped behind enemy lines. When one of the soldiers, Private John Cain (played by Hiram A. Murray), escapes, he joins up with a white US troop to go back and find fellow survivors.
Billy Zane plays Colonel Jack Morrison, who is in charge of the white troops that Cain finds after having escaped.
The WWI movie also stars Ron Perlman and Bates Wilder. It was written and directed by Steven Luke, who already has plenty of experience with wartime movies. Luke previously produced “Dust of War” and “War Pigs”, and also wrote the screenplays for both movies.
“The Great War” will be released digitally and in theaters on December 13, 2019.
