Initially slated to be released on February 12th, Civil War movie Union Bound has been pushed back to April 22nd. The inspiring film from Uptone Pictures, Moving Box Entertainment and Weathervane Productions and distributed by Hannover House/Medallion Releasing/Universal, is based on the actual diaries of Joseph Hoover, an unlikely survivor of the Underground Railroad.
Union Bound stars Sean Stone (son of famed director Oliver Stone) as real life soldier Joseph Hoover, who receives the help of freed slaves on his journey back to the Union. Directed by Harvey Lowry, Union Bound stars Sean Stone (JFK, Nixon, The Doors), Tank Jones (The Deadliest Gun, Breaking Bad), Randy Wayne (To Save a Life; The Dukes of Hazzard: The Beginning), Trish Cook (Dude, Where's My Dog?), Issac C. Singleton (Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl) and Christian Fortune (New Years Eve). Drew Seeley (High School Musical) also makes a cameo and Wynonna Judd's husband Cactus Moser (Wynonna & the Big Noise; Highway 101) recorded the theme song and makes an appearance as a wounded soldier.
"This is an amazing true story, more than 150 years in the making," said producer Michael Davis. "At a time when there is so much racial division, Union Bound tells the story of three men of different races, different backgrounds and different perspectives, united by a common purpose and fighting together for freedom."
