Aaron Eckhart will accompany Tom Hanks in the Warner Bros. Sally, dedicated to the famous 2009 US Airways plane crash. This is reported by The Hollywood Reporter.
Recall that in the center of the plot will be the pilot Chesley Sullenberg, who landed a passenger plane on the surface of the Hudson River after both engines failed. As a result of an emergency landing on the water, in which the plane remained almost completely intact, all 155 passengers on board survived. Several people were injured that did not pose a threat to life. Sullenberg, as befits a ship's captain, was the last to leave, making sure there were no people on board.
Eckhart got the role of co-pilot Jeff Skiles, who manually controlled the plane at the time of its collision with a flock of birds. He took an active part in the rescue of an airliner in distress. Clint Eastwood will direct the project, which will be based on the memories of Chesley Sullenberg himself. Shooting and rental schedules have not yet been specified.
As for Eckhart, in 2016 viewers will be able to see him in the action movie "The Fall of London", which was a sequel to the movie "The Fall of Olympus.
