Clint Eastwood’s ‘Sully’ Starring Tom Hanks Open Casting Call in Atlanta

Project Casting

‘Sully’ starring Tom Hanks and directed by Clint Eastwood is looking for background actors in Atlanta, Georgia.

Following Clint Eastwood’s Box Office hit movie American Sniper, Eastwood is now developing a movie about Capt. Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger. Sully will center around the commercial airline pilot who was praised as a national hero in 2009. Sully is written by Todd Komarnicki (Perfect Stranger) and is based on Capt. Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger’s autobiography, Highest Duty: My Search for What Really Matters, co-written by Jeffrey Zaslow.

Sully stars Tom Hanks as Capt. Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger and his life before and after the heroic crash landing along the Hudson River in New York City. 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. “I am very glad my story is in the hands of gifted storyteller and filmmaker Clint Eastwood, and veteran producers Allyn Stewart and Frank Marshall,” Sullenberger said in a statement. “The project could not have found a better home than Warner Bros. Pictures. This is truly a dream team.”
