Tom Hanks has already played a real-life captain of the sea in Captain Phillips movie. However, according to new reports, Hank’s next roles may be a captain of the skies. Hanks is in discussions with Clint Eastwood and Warner Bros about playing Captain Chesley ‘Sully’ Sullenberger, Deadline reports.
According to DigitalSpy, “Sullenberger famously landed US Airways Flight 1549 on the Hudson River in 2009, after the jet engines failed from multiple bird strikes. The emergency landing became known as the ‘Miracle on the Hudson’, as none of the 155 passengers or crew were fatally injured. “The retelling will be based on the book Highest Duty: My Search for What Really Matters, by Sullenberger and Jeffrey Zaslow.” Eastwood is directing the movie alongside Todd Komarnicki.
