Can someone help with the mentioned script for copying the dates from another field ?

I have the below script which simply copies the Due Date value and displays it. 

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue
import java.text.SimpleDateFormat;
import java.text.DateFormat

// get the value of the Due Date custom field

def dateAValue = issue.getDueDate() as Date

// build the new date

def dateB = Calendar.getInstance()

// copy to the new date the value of the Due Date custom field


return dateB.getTime()

I need help with modifying this script, so that it displays the farthest Due Date from the list of epics. The above scripted field is for Program epic

Thank you
