About Range 15 and Not a War Story
Range 15 starred Mat Best, Nick Palmisciano, Jack Mandaville, Vincent Vargas and Jarred Taylor and featured William Shatner, Sean Astin, Keith David, Randy Couture and Danny Trejo was director Ross Patterson’s breakout independent hit from 2016. Range 15 was the first Hollywood movie made by veterans from start to finish, and it topped the Amazon charts and hit #2 on iTunes, but it almost didn’t happen.
Not a War Story tells the tale of the five guys who set their sights on making a Hollywood film, the director crazy enough to take them on, but most importantly, the veteran community that help them up every time they came close to failure.
Where Range 15 is outlandish and funny, Not a War Story is a powerful and poignant film that shows the unbreakable bonds present in the veteran community.
