A couple of weeks ago it was announced that Clint Eastwood had found his next film, a movie about the Hero Of The Hudson, Chesley ‘Sully’ Sullenberger.
Based on Sully’s memoir, Highest Duty: My Search For What Really Matters, the film will chronicle what made the pilot an American legend, when he was at the controls of a passenger plane which malfunctioned and was going to crash. However the Captain managed to bring the plane down into New York’s Hudson River.
Whenever a film about Sullenberger has been mentioned, Tom Hanks’ name has emerged as the main person people thought should play him. Now it seems it’s going to happen, with the man himself in talks to star in the movie.
If he does sign on, it’s not clear when it will shoot, although Clint normally doesn’t need too long to prepare.
