The film is directed by Gavin O’Connor (Miracle, The Accountant, Warrior) and stars Ben Affleck, Janina Gavankar, Al Madrigal, Hayes MacArthur and Rachael Carpani.

Brad Ingelsby (Out of the Furnace, Run All Night) wrote the screenplay. O’Connor and Affleck are also producing the project with Jennifer Todd (Alice in Wonderland, Memento) and Mark Ciardi & Gordon Grey (The Rookie, McFarland, USA). The Way Back is set to be released on March 6, 2020 by Warner Bros. Pictures.

As previously reported, Simonsen also has Julia Hart’s Disney+ movie Stargirl coming up.
