Sean Astin joins the cast of a cycling drama based on true events, titled Hard Miles. The actor joins fellow Stranger Things alum Matthew Modine in the film. R J Daniel Hanna is directing the film while co-writing it along with Christian Sander. Daniel Hanna had earlier directed Matthew in the 2019 film Miss Virginia.

The film tells the story of a social worker bringing together a group of juvenile convicts to complete a 1000-mile cycle ride, which goes on to transform their lives. The film is based on the inspiring real-life story of abandoned youth and juvenile offenders from Colorado’s Ridgeview Academy.
