The North American rights to upcoming World War II action-thriller ‘Wolf Hound’ are acquired by by Grindstone Entertainment Group, a Lionsgate affiliate. According to reports, the film will be released on many platforms this summer. Michael B. Chait’s feature picture directorial debut is based on the real-life Nazi special operations unit KG 200, which shot down, repaired, and flew Allied planes as Trojan horses.
For the film’s extensive aerial scenes and dogfights, according to ‘Variety’, Chait used authentic, rare WWII aircraft and shot as much as possible in-camera. Craig Hosking, who previously served as aerial coordinator and lead pilot for Christopher Nolan’s ‘Dunkirk’, performed the same roles for ‘Wolf Hound’.
Set in 1944 Nazi-occupied France, ‘Wolf Hound’ stars James Maslow, who had previously starred in the Nickelodeon musical comedy ‘Big Time Rush’. He plays Captain David Holden, a Jewish American fighter pilot, opposite Australian-English actor Trevor Donovan, who’s best known for his character in the television series ‘Neighbours’. In the film, Donovan will play Nazi Major Erich Roth.
