James Maslow To Star in WWII Action Flick 'Wolf Hound'

James Maslow is taking to the skies for his next movie.

The 27-year-old actor and musician will star in WWII action film, Wolf Hound, which is inspired by the real-life Nazi special operations unit Kampfgeschwader 200 (KG 200), a plot designed to fly Allied aircraft as Trojan horses.

Wolf Hound follows Jewish-American fighter pilot David Holden (Maslow) as he escorts a B-17 bomber deep behind enemy lines. After a harrowing ambush, Holden engages in a one-on-one aerial joust with a Nazi Ace pilot, destroying both of their planes and forcing them to bail out and parachute to the forest floor below.

Alone, outnumbered and being hunted down by a Nazi Convoy hot on his trail, Holden must face his vengeful nemesis in a deadly game of cat and mouse to survive.

“I’m extremely excited to film Wolf Hound,” James shared in a statement. “My grandfather flew B17s in WWII and I’ve always wanted to play a pilot from that period of time.”

He added, “This story is remarkably similar to something he actually went through. This is exactly the kind of film I want to be making and I can’t wait to bring it to life this summer with [director] Michael B. Chait and the rest of the cast.”
