Tom Hanks In Talks for Captain Sully in Clint Eastwood's Film!

Tom Hanks is reportedly in talks to play the role of Captain Chesley Sullenberger in the upcoming Miracle on the Hudson movie being directed by Clint Eastwood!

The film will be called Sully and it is based on the book written by Chesley and the late Jeffrey Zaslow.

The story “takes a closer look at the man who became a national hero after his plane began to malfunction shortly after takeoff and he was forced to take drastic measures in order to save all those on the plane,” according to Variety.

This won’t be the first time Tom has played a famous captain. He was recently nominated for many awards for his work in Captain Phillips!

    Another crappy Eastwood movie. He did a great job landing the plane but who cares about the rest of his life.

    From Captain Philips to Captain Sullenberger. This is a movie that I have no interest in. We know he did his job and landed the plan. Beyond that I do not care about the story.

    I love Tom Hanks but guess without seeing him in makeup I have a hard time imagining him as the captain.

  • guest

    I do.

    Boring. How can you make a movie out of a 40 second landing?

    Why would anyone pick Tom Hanks? Sully is a hero and Hanks has the word a*s.s*.h*o,l’e* written across his forehead.

    Eastwood is awesome, if you don’t get why then you must be 12, Eastwood and Hanks are both great Actors and they both love this country.
