Tom Hanks is reportedly in talks to take on a role playing the real life Captain Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger in a new biopic.
The Clint Eastwood directed film will focus on Sullenberger, who in 2009, safely landed a US Airways flight in the Hudson River after the plane's engine was hit by a flock of geese. All 155 people on board were saved thanks to his efforts. (Video via CBS)
Tom Hanks seems to be one of the go-to guys in Hollywood to take on roles of real people.
