Hollywood actor Tom Hanks-starrer Sully is set to release on September 9 across India.
The biographical drama, directed by Oscar-winner Clint Eastwood, also stars The Dark Knight star Aaron Eckhart, ‘The Truman Show’ actor Laura Linney and Jeff Skiles.
The movie is based on the book ‘Highest Duty’ by Chesley Sully Sullenberger and Jeffrey Zaslow.
Two-time Academy award-winner Hanks essays the role of Chesley Sully Sullenberger, a retired airline captain, who became a hero after gliding his plane along the water in 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.
According to the film’s director, it was that part of the story, the one the world did not know, that drew him to the project.
Eckhart plays Sully’s co-pilot in the film while Linney will be the captain’s wife, Lorrie Sullenberger.
