Los Angeles Times - - CALENDAR - — Oliver Get­tell

Tom Hanks is in ne­go­ti­a­tions to play the lead role in Clint East­wood and Warner Bros.’ biopic about Capt. Chelsey B. “Sully” Sul­len­berger III, the pi­lot who safely landed a dis­abled jet­liner on the Hud­son River in 2009.

Dead­line Hol­ly­wood first re­ported the news.

Hanks has guided just about ev­ery en­dan­gered mode of trans­port there is to safety: the dam­aged space­craft of “Apollo 13,” the cargo ship of “Cap­tain Phillips,” even the “Po­lar Ex­press,” in an­i­mated form.
