Ang Lee ruins another great novel with horribly unfocused direction and a painfully apolitical take on an important political story.
Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk, Ang Lee’s ambitious Iraq war drama, leads our “Road to Oscar” issue, featuring a preview of the films set to make a splash during the 2017 awards season.
Three-time Academy Award winner Ang Lee brings his extraordinary vision to Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk, based on the widely-acclaimed, bestselling novel.
TriStar Pictures has slated Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk, the groundbreaking, cinematic event film from director Ang Lee, for release on Veterans Day, November 11, 2016. Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk stars Joe Alwyn, Garrett Hedlund, Steve Martin, Ben Platt, Kristen Stewart, Vin Diesel and Chris Tucker.
With his latest franchise entry, Furious 7, having already surpassed $400 million at the worldwide box office, Vin Diesel is planning a very different big screen role. According to a story today at Deadline, the Guardians of the Galaxy star will be joining Ang Lee’s all-star ensemble Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk. What’s more, Chris Tucker (Silver Linings Playbook, Rush Hour) is also signing on. The pair join a cast that currently includes Joe Alwyn, Garrett Hedlund, Steve Martin, Ben Platt and Kristen Stewart.
