“Valiant One” follows the crew of a U.S. military helicopter that crashes in North Korean territory at the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ), according to Deadline. Amidst high tensions between North and South Korea, the survivors, all of whom are non-combat U.S. Army soldiers, must protect a civilian asset and get across the DMZ without additional support.

Eric Tipton wrote the screenplay based on an original idea by Steve Barnett, who will direct. Vicky L. Patel will serve as executive producer. A release date has not yet been announced. 

Best known for her role as Lara Jean in Netflix’s “To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before” trilogy, this will be Condor’s latest role following Erika Vu on Netflix’s “Boo, Bitch” and Sophie Tsukino on HBO Max’s film “Moonshot.” She is set to also star in the upcoming animated film “Coyote vs. Acme.”
