Tom Felton Finds Ghosts Of The Pacific
With Garrett Dillahunt & Jake Abel

Tom Felton

It would appear that Tom Felton just can’t get enough of World War II at the moment. He’s got soldier saga Grace And Danger awaiting release and now he’s signed onto downed pilots tale Ghosts Of The Pacific alongside Garret Dillahunt and Jake Abel.

The film recounts the incredible journey of pilot Harold Dixon (Dillahunt), bombardier Tony Pastula (Felton), and radioman Gene Aldrich (Abel) – virtual strangers assigned to a scouting mission on January 16, 1942. When they are forced to ditch their plane, the men are left with no food, water, or supplies; only a four by eight-foot yellow life raft to keep them afloat on a dangerous ocean.

American Film Company, which aims to blend historically faithful stories with dramatic action, is behind this one, with company president Brian Falk making his directorial debut. Shooting is set to kick off next week at Baja Studios (most famously the home of James Cameron’s Titanic).

It’s certainly a decent cast: Dillahunt in particular tends to be a secret weapon of pure acting ability whenever he crops up on screen, so hopefully the results will be impressive.

Felton has the aforementioned Grace And Danger awaiting a release date plus Therese and Belle making their way through post-production. Dillahunt stars on US sitcom Raising Hope and finds time to appear in a variety of movies. He has The Scribbler and Steve McQueen’s Twelve Years A Slave up next. Abel, meanwhile, is in The Host and will reprise his role as the treacherous Luke for Percy Jackson: Sea Of Monsters.
