If it’s one thing Tom Hanks is good at it’s being a captain. He’s already captained a cargo ship in Captain Phillipps and, most recently, a passenger plane in Sully: Miracle on the Hudson. It looks like he’s set to be a naval captain in the World War II drama, Greyhound.
We’re guessing that after what happened in Sully, Hanks has decided that he only wants to captain water-based vehicles. In Greyhound he is the commander of the titular naval destroyer and has to wrestle with his self doubt of whether he belongs in the captain’s chair or not. There’s not much else known about the movie but it is currently coming together.
Hanks himself is writing the film and will also be producing so he’s going to be very busy on the set of this film. As many will know, this will not be his first World War II movie. Most famously he starred in a leading role in Steven Spielberg’s 1996 Saving Private Ryan. But neither will this be his first time as a writer as he previously wrote That Thing You Do! and Larry Crowne.
We don’t have a release date yet for Greyhound as they still need to fill out the rest of the cast and find a director to helm the film.
