"I'm The Captain Now"

The next year or so will find Tom Hanks back in American Hero mode in a big way: He's slated to form an Americana moebius-strip by playing Walt Disney in the making-of-"Mary-Poppins" drama "Saving Mr. Banks" soon enough, but first up he'll be "Captain Philips," the real-life captain of a freighter attacked by Somali pirates a few years ago. Directing duties went to Paul Greengrass, so... "United 93. But On A Boat. And With A Happy Ending."
