Subject: Clint Eastwood to direct film about hero pilot 'Sully'

Written By: Philip Eno on 06/03/15 at 6:04 am

Clint Eastwood is to direct a film about Chelsey 'Sully' Sullenberger, the pilot who famously crash-landed a plane in New York's Hudson River in 2009.

All 155 people on board the US Airways flight survived, with the incident dubbed the "Miracle on the Hudson".

Warner Bros. confirmed Eastwood would direct and produce the drama, which will be based on Captain Sullenberger's own memoir.

Eastwood's last film American Sniper was his biggest box-office hit to date.

The film, starring Bradley Cooper as Navy Seal Chris Kyle, took $543.4m (£353.8m) globally and was the biggest movie of 2014 in the US.
"I am very glad my story is in the hands of gifted storyteller and filmmaker Clint Eastwood," said Sullenberger.
