Take another look at Tom Hanks, who stars as Captain Richard Phillips in Paul Greengrass‘ action thriller, which is set to hit theaters next month. In case you forgot, the movie follows the titular captain, whose ship was boarded by four Somali pirates who took crew members hostage. He’s a real-life hero, that’s for sure, head inside to check him out…
Greengrass directed the movie from a script written by Billy Ray, which is based upon the book “A Captain’s Duty: Somali Pirates, Navy SEALs, and Dangerous Days at Sea” by Richard Phillips and Stephan Talty.
The movie tells the true story of Captain Richard Phillips and the 2009 hijacking by Somali pirates of the US-flagged MV Maersk Alabama, the first American cargo ship to be hijacked in two hundred years.
