“Simply put, Clint Eastwood is at the top of his game, not to mention a global treasure,” Warner Bros. Pictures’ President of Creative Development and Worldwide Production Greg Silverman said in a statement. “On the heels of his extraordinary work in American Sniper
, it is tremendously exciting to see him explore the life of another captivating true-life hero.”
If you can't remember, Sullenberger was a piloting US Airways Flight 1549 when it struck a flock of birds. He then performed an emergency landing in New York City's Hudson River. Everyone on the flight survived but the movie will look beyond that fateful January day.
