A MOVIE ABOUT THE HUDSON RIVER HERO

 

NEW YORK (AP) – Clint Eastwood will follow his box-office sensation
"American Sniper" with a biopic of pilot Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger
(above).

Warner Bros. announced Tuesday that Eastwood will direct and produce
the not-yet-titled drama as his next film. The film is to be adapted from
Sullenberger’s 2009 memoir, "Highest Duty: My Search for What Really
Matters," which chronicles his personal history before he landed a US 
Airways plane in the Hudson River in New York (seen above) in 2009.
