Focus Features has acquired the U.S. rights and select international territories for the upcoming thriller “Last Breath” from Longshot Films and Dark Castle Entertainment, the companies announced Thursday. The film is based on a 2019 documentary of the same name.

The film from director Alex Parkinson stars Woody Harrelson, Finn Cole and Simu Liu. Mitchell LaFortune, David Brooks and Parkinson wrote the script.

The producers are Stewart Le Maréchal, Al Morrow, Anna Mohr-Pietsch, Jeremy Plager, Hal Sadoff, Norman Golightly, and David and Paul Brooks.

The official logline for the film reads: “‘Last Breath’ is an exhilarating true story following a seasoned deep sea diver as he battles against the raging elements to execute his final rescue mission. This heart-pounding film is a gripping tale of teamwork and resilience that takes audiences on an electrifying race against time.”

The movie was initially developed by father and son Paul and David of Longshot Films and Dark Castle Entertainment, who also co-financed the film with Aperture. The film is the latest project from longtime collaborators Paul and Focus Features, after previously working together on “My Big Fat Greek Wedding 3” and “Campions,” which also starred Harrelson.

    At the age of 66, my spouse was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease. His symptoms included excruciating calf pain, muscular aches, tremors, slurred speech, frequent falls, loss of balance, and trouble standing up from a seated posture. After six months on Senemet, Siferol was given to him in place of the Senemet. It was also at this period that he was diagnosed with dementia. He began seeing hallucinations and became detached from reality. With the doctor’s approval, we stopped giving him Siferol and chose to try the Natural Herbs Center PD-5 program, which we had previously investigated. After three months of therapy, he has made significant progress. The illness has been completely contained. There are no symptoms of persistent twitching, weakness, tremors, hallucinations, or muscle soreness. The PD-5 Protocol was obtained from natural herbs centre I’m sharing my husband experience perhaps it might help, but you still need to decide what works best for you. Sending prayers
