Greyhound movie 2020 Reviews
In September 2016, it was announced that Tom Hanks would write a screenplay about the World War II Navy destroyer. Hanks would also play a star in the film. In February 2017, Aaron Schneider was called to direct the movie and Sony Pictures acquired the distribution rights.
Pre-production photography took place in January 2018 at sea, aboard the HMCS Montreal, in the Royal Canadian Navy frigate. In March 2018, Stephen Graham, Elisabeth Shue, Rob Morgan, Karl Glusman, and Manuel Garcia-Rulfo were cast, and filmmaking began in Louisiana, aboard the USS Kidd, in Baton Rouge.
In the early stages of U.S. involvement in World War II, an international convoy of 37 Allied ships, led by Commander Ernest Krause, crosses the traitorous North Atlantic Atlantic while fiercely chasing a wolf pack of German U-ships.
The film focuses on Krause, a career officer who was eventually given as a commander to a destroyer, the USS Keeling (a radio code name Greyhound). Unlike the prototypical hero, he must fight his own misdemeanors and his personal demon to be an effective leader of the defenders.
