SULLY HAILED BY HOMETOWN – WHO SHOULD STAR IN THE MOVIE?

44689222sully.jpg
We almost wish we could have been in Danville, California, for the hero’s welcome they threw for pilot “Sully” Sullenberger. Thousands of people gathered to hail him a hometown hero in an outdoor ceremony featuring brass bands and bagpipes. (We couldn’t help but picture an oldtime Frank Capra / James Stewart movie set in the midwest.) Sullenberger, who seems to be a modest man of few words, asked town leaders to keep the event low-key, but he was overwhelmed when he saw the assembled crowd. His wife was in tears. Danville residents held up flags and signs and cheered throughout the event. What a movie this story will make! Maybe Matthew Modine could play Sully – or Tom Hanks. Who would you cast? (No, John Waters would NOT be appropriate!)

  1. If it’s a quality feature film-William H. Macy
    If it’s a cheesy Lifetime movie-David Hasselhoff

  2. I’ll be amazed if Kevin Costner has not secured the rights to this story — even as we speak.

  3. I like Lindsay Lohan in the role of the young flight attendant Sully dumps his wife for after making it big as a hero.

  4. They don’t need to make a movie. We have seen all we need to see. Documentaries and an hour long TV special is all that should be done. He should be given a month’s or so Hawaiian vacation for bravery and take his family. Every thing that happens like this doesn’t have to be a movie. g-bye.

  5. Asked them to keep it low keep my arse. This guy is eating it up. You should have seen him here in DC, taking comped meals, a comped hotel suite (didn’t tip housekeeping) and comped car service. Now evidence shows that there are no bird remains in those engines. This wreck may have been pilot error.

  6. Before we brand this Man a hero it is important that the NTSB perform it’s investigation.
    We don’t know the facts. This man could have purposefully crashed the plane into the river for all we know…..Don’t trust the Corporate media to tell truths folks!!!

  7. Kevin Bacon. And since that jew stole all his money, he really needs the work.

  8. his wife makes me gag. You think she was the co-pilot of the plane. I found it wrong that she got up to speak. Talk about riding someone’s coattails!

  9. Karen Black as the sultry Senior Stewardess who has to overcome severe cross-eyedness in order to help fly the plane.

  10. Reports are now surfacing that survivors of the crash resorted to eating some of their fellow passengers in the tense and harrowing minutes before their dramatic rescue. So obviously, this is a story that as a movie, will have to be handled with great care and sensitivity.

  11. Sheesh. You guys are brutal. The man is a hero. Let him get his 15 minutes of fame. I bet if you were on the plane, and escaped with your life, you’d be singing a different tune. Not that this “disaster” deserves to have a movie made, but if people are stupid enough to buy a ticket to see the show, they get what they deserve.

  12. WTF? WHY MAKE A MOVIE ABOUT A 5 MINUTE FLIGHT?WHO WANTS TO SEE AN AIRPLANE MOVIE WITH A HAPPY ENDING? UNLESS THE PLANE BLOWS UP, SNOOP OR LESLIE NEILSON IS THE PILOT, A KID VANISHES FROM JODY FOSTER, A TERRORIST IS DEFEATED, OR A CREEPY, EVIL GUY IS HITTING ON SOME BIMBO… NO ONE WILL WANT TO SEE IT.I MEAN REALLY!!!

  13. Maybe it’s the word “hero” that has outlasted its usefulness. At one point, remember, some of the same people who are now lionizing Sullenberger were once singing identical praises about Rudy Giu911iani.

  16. Some great suggestions above — especially the Mike Farrell idea, he’d be perfect — UNFORTUNATELY, one of the British newspaper websites reported yesterday that none other than Tom Cruise is interested in making the movie/playing the role. Cue global groan on 3.

  17. I think Christian Bale should be cast as Captain Sully just to add insult to injury of Cruise buying the rights or maybe to tech Bale a lesson.

  18. Casonia Logenberry..Ben looks really sexy and in good shape..Tennile is Elisa role model what a joke and Van Sexy texas man yes love to see him but Trevor who are you fooling?Jillian good girl well missed says:

    Movies must be hard to do and you have to have emotions and feelings and you have to know the right words to say in order to make it work well and good luck and take care and hope this movie works well.
