Actor Glen Powell has released an unofficial first look at Joe Jonas, Johnathan Majors, and more in costume on the set of the upcoming film, Devotion, via Instagram. The black-and-white images show cast members in military garb posing in front of planes, trucks, and what looks to be a military base.
Devotion, based on the book “Devotion: An Epic Story of Heroism, Friendship, and Sacrifice” by Adam Makos, tells the story of two U.S. Navy fighter pilots, Tom Hudner and Jesse Brown, during the Korean War and their tale of heroism, friendship, and sacrifice. Hudner, a white New Englander raised in country clubs, passed on an offer from Harvard to become a pilot in the war. Brown, a sharecropper’s son from Mississippi, became the Navy’s first black carrier pilot, serving a country that would not even serve him at a restaurant. The film is directed by J.D. Dillard, the filmmaker behind 2016’s Sleight and 2019’s Sweetheart.
