Kiefer Sutherland is leading a thrilling new courtroom drama.
PEOPLE is exclusively debuting the first trailer for The Caine Mutiny Court-Martial, the final film of director William Friedkin, who died in August at age 87. The Oscar winner is known for films like The French Connection and The Exorcist.
The film's cast also includes Jason Clarke, Jake Lacy, Monica Raymund, Lewis Pullman, Jay Duplass, Tom Riley and Lance Reddick. Reddick, of The Wire and John Wick fame, died in March at age 60.
Based on the Pulitzer Prize–winning novel by Herman Wouk, The Caine Mutiny Court-Martial follows naval lawyer Barney Greenwald (Clarke), who "defends Lt. Steve Maryk (Lacy), a first officer of the Navy who took control of the U.S.S. Caine from its domineering captain Lt. Philip Francis Queeg (Sutherland) during a violent sea storm in unfriendly waters."
During the high-stakes trial, though, "Greenwald becomes increasingly concerned and questions if the events aboard the Caine were deemed a true mutiny or simply the courageous acts of a group of sailors who did not trust their unstable leader."
