Official Trailer for WWII Action Film 'Chosen' Featuring Harvey Keitel
"An ordinary man, but the circumstances were extraordinary…" Lionsgate has released a new trailer for the WWII action film Chosen, from director Jasmin Dizdar, starring legendary actor Harvey Keitel as an unassuming Hungarian lawyer who ends up leading an anti-Nazi resistance during the war. English actor Luke Mably plays the "young" version of Keitel seen in flashbacks during the war. There is quite a bit of action in this, which is probably the main selling point, but I'm curious how much takes place in the present and how much really takes place in the past (during the war). Also starring Ana Ularu. Even though this is direct-to-DVD, if you're a fan of WWII films it's worth checking out. Not sure if it's any good, might be solid.
Here's the official US trailer (+ poster) for Jasmin Dizdar's Chosen, direct from Lionsgate's YouTube:
Screen legend Harvey Keitel stars as Sonson, a Hungarian citizen and unassuming lawyer whose courage alters the course of World War II as he unwittingly becomes a leader of the opposition and discovers the hero deep within himself. Chosen is directed by British-Bosnian filmmaker Jasmin Dizdar, of the film Beautiful People previously as well as a few short films. The screenplay is written by Gabriel De Mercur, who also executive produced. The film hasn't played at any film festivals yet as far as we know. Lionsgate will release Dizdar's Chosen directly to DVD + VOD starting August 2nd this summer. Anyone interested?
