The original motion picture Jarhead was a satirical look at the 1991 desert campaigns Desert Shield and Desert Storm told through the eyes of a Marine sniper played by Jake Gyllenhaal. The film also starred Jamie Foxx and while it wasn’t an action film, Universal has turned the franchise into a direct to video powder keg of films that have included Jarhead 2: Field Of Fire and Jarhead 3: The Siege which featured action star Scott Adkins.
Now, the newest entry titled Jarhead: Law Of Return is ready to hit Blu-Ray, DVD and Digital this October and it tells the harrowing story of a Special Ops group known as the 2nd Marine Raiders who risked it all to save a downed Israeli fighter pilot who was the son of a U.S. Senator. Check out the cover art below!
Official Synopsis: Major Ronan Jackson (Devon Sawa), an accomplished fighter pilot for the Israeli Defense Forces and son of a U.S. Senator (Robert Patrick) is shot down while flying through Syrian airspace. After miraculously surviving the crash, Jackson is taken captive by a group of Hezbollah militiamen. A gripping and powerful story with hard-hitting action, Jarhead: Law Of Return follows a squad of elite soldiers led by Sergeant Dave Flores (Amaury Nolasco), as they risk their own lives in the hopes of saving an ally they’ve never met.
The new installment was helmed by Don Michael Paul who directed the second entry Field Of Fire and it stars Amaury Nolasco, Devon Sawa, Jeff Pierre, Ben Cross, Yael Eitan, Amas Taman and Robert Patrick.
The cool thing is I was able to interview Devon Sawa when he was making the rounds promoting Escape Plan: The Extractors and he talked about the film in our exclusive chat.
“Yeah I had a lot of fun doing that and it’s really not hush, hush. I play an American born-Israeli fighter pilot and it’s called the “law of return” where they can come over and take half Israeli born people and bring them over to join their military so I play a pilot that goes down in Syria and the team has to come in and get me but I’m interrogated and it’s really a cool project and it was a lot of fun ad we shot it in Bulgaria a little bit and we went to Jerulsialim and Tel Aviv and it was amazing.“
