Clint Eastwood comes back to the big screen with a new movie; Sully. We talked to him in Los Angeles at the London Hotel. The story transforms a familiar tale of U.S. Airways Flight 1549—in which Captain Chesley Sullenberger and First Officer Jeff Skiles safely landed in the Hudson River, in 2009, after losing both jets in a bird strike—into a fierce political thriller, full of surprises and even twists.
The new Ben-Hur movie is a massive production, boasting big talent like Jack Huston and Morgan Freeman, and a couple of very impressive set pieces including director Timur Bekmambetov‘s rendition of the iconic chariot race sequence. Freeman stars as Sheik Ilderim in the remake of the 1959 classic starring Charlton Heston. Freeman’s Sudanese sheikh character backs Huston’s character in his quest for freedom.
