Paladin has just released the first teaser trailer for the dramatic film, The Ottoman Lieutenant. Josh Hartnett (Penny Dreadful), Michiel Huisman (Game of Thrones), Hera Hilmar (Da Vinci’s Demons), and Ben Kingsley star in the World War I film written by Jeff Stockwell and directed by Joseph Ruben. The Ottoman Lieutenant will open in theaters in 2017.
The Plot: The Ottoman Lieutenant is the first movie to explore the eastern front of World War I, and tells the story of a beautiful, strong-willed woman (Hilmar), who, frustrated by ongoing injustice at home, leaves the United States after meeting Jude, an American doctor (Hartnett) who runs a remote medical mission within the Ottoman Empire — a world both exotic and dangerous, and on the brink of what is about to become the first World War. There, she finds her loyalty to Jude and the mission’s founder, (Kingsley) tested when she falls in love with a lieutenant in the Ottoman Imperial Army (Huisman). Now, with invading army forces at their doorstep, and the world about to plunge into all-out war, she must decide if she wants to be what other people want her to be, or to be herself.
