Following the incredible success of The Sniper, Clint Eastwood decided to continue experimenting with biopic cinema. According to Comingsoon, his next directorial project will be a movie dedicated to another American hero - the pilot Chesley Sullenberg.
The latter became known not only in the United States, but also far beyond their borders after in 2009 he landed a US Airways passenger airliner, which, after a collision with a flock of birds, refused to fly both engines, on the surface of the Hudson.
Sullenberg showed a truly unique composure and piloting skills, managing to deploy an airliner with idle engines and full fuel tanks over the city. As a result of an emergency landing on water in which the plane remained 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 passengers on board.
"It is a great honor for me that the story of my humble person is in the hands of such a gifted cinematographer as Clint Eastwood," Sullenberg said in a statement regarding the future movie project. The shooting and distribution schedules have not yet been specified, as well as the possible performers of the main roles have not been named.
