Apple TV+ Announces Four new Cast Members for the Film "The Greatest Beer Run Ever," a new Comedy Series titled "Amber Brown" and more



In March, it was revealed that Apple was in talks to finance the film "The Greatest Beer Run Ever, with Russle Crowe and Zac Efron. At the time, the deal was nowhere near being closed. Apple obviously closed the deal shortly thereafter because we're learning today that the original Apple Film has added four new cast members: Jake Picking, Will Ropp, Archie Renaux and Kyle Allen.


Beer Run tells Donohue’s story of leaving New York in 1967 to bring beer to his childhood buddies in the Army — while they are fighting in Vietnam. Donohue took a good idea to the extreme, hitching a ride on a Merchant Marine ship, then carrying the beer through the jungle as he tried to track down his three friends. Dressed in shorts and Hawaiian shirts, he was mistaken for CIA, which made his effort a bit easier. Finally, when he completed his beer run, the Tet Offensive happened. Efron will play Donohue.
