About Land of Bad Movie:

Land of Bad is an American action thriller film directed by William Eubank, who co-wrote the script with David Frigerio. The film stars Liam Hemsworth, Russell Crowe, Luke Hemsworth, Ricky Whittle, and Milo Ventimiglia.

The film, originally titled JTAC, was written by David Frigerio and William Eubank in 2012 and in 2013 at Satellite Coffee coffee shops in Albuquerque during production of their film The Signal.

Shortly after writing the script, Eubank and Frigerio shadowed real-life JTACs for two weeks at Fort Irwin National Training Center; their immersion in the world of forward air control was extensive with the two radioing in “nine lines” (close air support briefings) to F-35 pilots overhead during exercises.

The cast project, with Eubank also directing, was first announced at the 2022 Cannes Film Market, with Russell Crowe and Liam Hemsworth as the first cast members attached to the film. In September 2022, additional casting announcements.

Principal photography began in September 2022, running through November 2022 in the Gold Coast, Queensland. The production took advantage of location incentives offered by the Australian government, bringing roughly 270 jobs to its local film industry.

During production, Signature Entertainment purchased the distribution rights for the UK and Ireland, France, and Scandinavia, with distribution in the United States handled by The Avenue.

Land of Bad was released in the United States on February 16, 2024.
