“Over the last few years, the question of whether we could find Mike and bring him back to our family has often come to mind. The thought of him being left there made me uncomfortable.
He said the series would be a “strong and powerful story of brotherhood.”
“This has been the most meaningful and humbling experience of my own life and I hope this film delivers to my brave brother the decent legacy he got in his youth.”
