Mexican director Luis Mandoki has boarded Vietnam War indie drama “The Don Dawson Story” with plans to start lensing early next year.
Story is triggered by the 1964 disappearance of U.S. Army pilot Daniel Dawson’s L-19 surveillance plane in the Vietnam jungles. Three weeks later, his younger brother Don left his job, family and friends, emptied his bank account and traveled to Vietnam to find his brother.
Don Dawson spent the next eight months in Vietnam, including four as a Pow, but wasn’t able to locate his brother.
