Samuel L. Jackson Set To Appear In The Last Full Measure

Academy Award-nominated Pulp Fiction star Samuel L. Jackson has signed on to Todd Robinson’s upcoming drama The Last Full Measure.

He is currently known as SHIELD director Nick Fury in the movies that make up Marvel’s Cinematic Universe, had a supporting role as Mace Windu in the Star Wars prequel trilogy, and reunited with Tarantino for his latest films Django Unchained and The Hateful Eight. Most recently, he is set to appear in Kong: Skull Island.

Jackson is hardly the first actor to be added to the cast of the planned movie. Among those already cast in the project are Academy Award-winner Christopher Plummer, William Hurt, Michael Imperioli, and Sebastian Stan, who is set to headline the film., the source of this story, shares the following description of the movie’s plot:

Based on the true story of a present-day cover-up investigation, The Last Full Measure follows young Pentagon investigator Scott Huffman (Stan) as he battles the political machine in Washington. He reluctantly teams with veterans of Operation Abilene to convince Congress to award the Medal of Honor to a courageous Air Force medic, William Pitsenbarger, who is seen saving the lives of over 60 Marines ambushed in one of the bloodiest battles of the Vietnam War.

An aspiring writer, longtime film junkie, and former disc jockey (where I graduated with a BA in Political Science), I've made the jump from penning book reviews and current events editorials for to writing movie and TV news and reviews.

When I'm not working towards my certificate in Radio and Television/Video Production at Fullerton College, I enjoy reading (horror, science fiction, and historical/political nonfiction are particular favorites), participating in my school's TV and theatre clubs, attending movie screenings, plays, concerts, and other events, and trying to come up with pithy things to say on social media. Believe it or not, there are occasions where I find time to write for my own leisure.
