Comedian Bert Kreischer’s viral story about getting kidnapped by Russian gangsters is getting turned into a movie, with Star Wars actor Mark Hamill on board to star in it.
Hamill and Kreischer himself will appear in the movie, which comes from Godzilla studio Legendary. It’s based on Kreischer’s viral story about his time studying abroad in Russia when he had a run-in with the Russia mob and helped them rob a train.

Hamill will play Kreischer’s father. It’s not a re-telling of the events per se, but instead, the events of the story will catch up with Kreischer 20 years later. Kreischer and his father (Hamill) are now being pursued by the people that he wronged two decades ago.
