James Maslow has been a busy man lately!
Fresh off promoting his new single “All Day,” Maslow will be soon heading to set for his latest gig — fighter pilot David Holden in the World War II action movie Wolf Hound.
Inspired by the real-life Nazi special operations unit Kampfgeschwader 200 (KG 200), a plot designed to fly Allied aircraft as Trojan horses, Wolf Hound takes place in 1944 and follows Jewish-American fighter pilot David Holden (Maslow) as he escorts a B-17 bomber deep behind enemy lines. After a harrowing ambush, Holden engages in a one-on-one aerial joust with a Nazi Ace pilot, destroying both of their planes and forcing them to bail out and parachute to the forest floor below. Alone, outnumbered and being hunted down by a Nazi Convoy hot on his trail, Holden must face his vengeful nemesis in a deadly game of cat and mouse to survive.
“I’m extremely excited to film Wolf Hound. My grandfather flew B17s in WWII and I’ve always wanted to play a pilot from that period of time. This story is remarkably similar to something he actually went through,” says Maslow. “This is exactly the kind of film I want to be making and I can’t wait to bring it to life this summer with Michael B. Chait and the rest of the cast.”
The dual threat will be working with award-winning director Michael B. Chait on the project, who will be also making his feature film directorial debut with Wolf Hound. Michael has directed music videos for artists including Apl.de.Ap of The Black Eyed Peas, and commercials for clients including Honda, Falcon Motorsports, Lingenfelter Performance Engineering and The U.S. Air Force/Air National Guard, receiving the Civilian Legion of Merit Medal for one.
