Malta Independent - - CINEMA -

From Os­car-win­ning di­rec­tor Clint East­wood comes Warner Bros. Pic­tures’ and Vil­lage Road­show Pic­tures’ drama “Sully,” star­ring Os­car win­ner Tom Hanks as Cap­tain Ch­es­ley “Sully” Sul­len­berger.

On Jan­uary 15, 2009, the world wit­nessed the “Mir­a­cle on the Hud­son” when Cap­tain “Sully” Sul­len­berger glided his dis­abled plane onto the frigid wa­ters of the Hud­son River, sav­ing the lives of all 155 aboard. How­ever, even as Sully was be­ing her­alded by the pub­lic and the me­dia for his un­prece­dented feat of avi­a­tion skill, an in­ves­ti­ga­tion was un­fold­ing that threat­ened to de­stroy his rep­u­ta­tion and his ca­reer.

“Sully” also stars Aaron Eck­hart as Sully’s co-pi­lot, Jeff Sk­iles, and Os­car nom­i­nee Laura Lin­ney as Sully’s wife, Lor­rie Sul­len­berger.

East­wood di­rected the film from a screen­play by Todd Ko­mar­nicki, based on the book High­est Duty by Ch­es­ley “Sully” Sul­len­berger and Jef­frey Zaslow. The project was pro­duced by East­wood, Frank Mar­shall, Al­lyn Ste­wart and Tim Moore, with Kipp Nel­son and Bruce Ber­man serv­ing as ex­ec­u­tive pro­duc­ers.

The film re­united East­wood with sev­eral of his long­time col­lab­o­ra­tors, who most re­cently worked with the di­rec­tor on the world­wide hit “Amer­i­can Sniper”: di­rec­tor of pho­tog­ra­phy Tom Stern and pro­duc­tion de­signer James J. Mu­rakami, who were both Os­car-nom­i­nated for their work on “The Changeling”; cos­tume de­signer Deb­o­rah Hop­per; and new editor Blu Mur­ray. The mu­sic is by Chris­tian Jacob and The Tier­ney Sut­ton Band.

Warner Bros. Pic­tures presents, in as­so­ci­a­tion with Vil­lage Road­show Pic­tures, a Flash­light Films pro­duc­tion, a Kennedy/Mar­shall Com­pany pro­duc­tion, a Mal­paso pro­duc­tion, a film by Clint East­wood, “Sully.” The film, which opens on Septem­ber 9, 2016, will be dis­trib­uted world­wide by Warner Bros. Pic­tures, a Warner Bros. En­ter­tain­ment Com­pany, and in select ter­ri­to­ries by Vil­lage Road­show Pic­tures.
