“Greyhound” is finally here
I’ve known about this for a couple years, and been on the periphery of it as it was filmed, in part, on local museum ships such as the USS Kidd and USS Orleck in Louisiana. Further, some of my friends in the gun industry have been very involved with this, for instance, Joe Meaux and the gang in getting some Bofors mounts back in action.
With that, I am very excited about this, despite the fact that Hanks is 63, making him surely one of the oldest CDRs in a surface warfare command in history!
Greyhound is an upcoming war film directed by Aaron Schneider and starring Tom Hanks, who also serves as a screenwriter. The film is based on the 1955 novel The Good Shepherd by C. S. Forester. It also stars Stephen Graham, Rob Morgan, and Elisabeth Shue. The film follows a US Navy Commander on his first war-time assignment at the midpoint of World War II during the Battle of the Atlantic, as he leads his multi-national escort group in defending a convoy of merchant ships as submarines attack.
