Robert Davi (The Expendables 3) has been cast in the new Ronald Reagan biopic as former Soviet Union leader Leonid Brezhnev, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The new film, simply titled Reagan, tells the story of Reagan as a youngster, through his acting years and into his presidency, according to the outlet. Young Disney Channel star David Henrie (Wizards of Waverly Place) is set to feature in the film as Reagan during his teens and 20’s.
Howard Klausner (Space Cowboys) has written the film based on two betselling books by writer Paul Kengor. Brezhnev was in power in the Soviet Union between 1964 and 1982 when he passed away, and exchanged over 30 letters with Reagan in that time.
