Midway has been a passion project for director Roland Emmerich, who worked tirelessly for years getting the film approved and then made. It features the heroic stories of real-life military figures during one of World War II’s most notable battles. Dennis Quaid joined the ensemble cast as U.S. Navy Vice Admiral William Halsey, and he told us he was drawn to the film, in large part, because of Emmerich’s passion.
