Laura Linney Joins Eastwood’s “Sully”

Laura Linney is closing a deal to star as the wife of Tom Hanks’ character in Clint Eastwood’s “Sully” at Warner Bros. Pictures.

Hanks plays Captain Chesley ‘Sully’ Sullenberger who engineered a miraculous emergency landing of US Airways Flight 1549 in the Hudson River after a flock of geese hit the plane just after it took off from La Guardia Airport – saving all 155 people aboard the plane.

Eastwood will direct from a screenplay by Todd Komarnicki, and Aaron Eckhart also stars.
