TOM HANKS IS PERFECTLY CAST AS CAPTAIN SULLY SULLENBERGER

143486PCN_Eastwood20cut

Clint Eastwood loves a hero, (and an occasional heroine) so it makes perfect sense that HE would develop the story of Sully Sullenberger, the courageous airline pilot who saved 155 people with his perfect crash landing on the Hudson River. In 2009, Captain Sullenberger’s flight was interrupted by a flock of geese caught in the engines and after he carefully guided the plane into the water, he made sure every passenger was safely removed. Sully was a national hero and his modesty made him even more appealing. Who could better play that role than nice guy Tom Hanks? Perfect casting. Above, Eastwood and Hanks discuss the next scene they’re filming on location in NYC.

    Certainly “hats off” to Sully, but since everyone knows how this turned out, it seems the movie would be boring.

    An entire movie based on a five minute indecent? OK then.

    @Justsayin,

    I totally agree, they reenacted this on a Mayday episode, even that was a stretch.
    Regardless, it was great airmanship.

    Great story but probably more appropriate for a made for tv movie than a real movie!

    Maybe Clint can jazz it up, and make the story a nail-biter.

    Good photo of Eastwood. Is it just me or does Hanks look a little like Richard Dreyfuss from the side (at least in this picture).

NEW UPDATE CHECK IT OUT - HOLLYWOOD WHODUNIT!

  • HOLLYWOOD WHODUNIT: LOOK WHO’S NOT TALKING ABOUT HARVEY WEINSTEIN !
    |

    We love every one of Harvey Weinstein’s female accusers – but what about the actresses who AREN’T talking? One actress who won an Oscar in the 90’s has been CONSPICUOUSLY SILENT about the casting couch scandal. It’s because SHE has had a long-term “arrangement” with Harvey in which she traded sex for showbiz favors and it must have been awful, but her career prospered. Now this A-lister is horrified at the prospect of being found out! And, guess what – she’s NOT the only one who’s conspicuously silent!
    Any guesses?
