Matthew Modine (Full Metal Jacket) and Eric Stoltz (Anaconda) head the dynamic cast of Memphis Belle, an adventure inspired by true World War II heroics. Producers David Puttnam and Catherine Wyler used her father William Wyler’s 1944 film about the famed Flying Fortress as inspiration. Director Michael Caton-Jones (The Jackal) cast top-flight actors: Billy Zane (Titanic), Harry Connick Jr. (Copycat), Tate Donovan (Love Potion #9), D.B. Sweeney (The Cutting Edge), Sean Astin (Rudy), David Strathairn (L.A. Confidential), Reed Diamond (Homicide: Life on the Street) and John Lithgow (3rd Rock from the Sun). In these talented ranks, Memphis Belle soars.
