Sony’s Tom Hanks World War II movie Greyhound is jumping from its May 8 weekend to June 12, as a means to tee off before the Father’s Day weekend of June 19-21. I hear the pic’s rescheduling has nothing to do with coronavirus fears which are weighing on many distribs’ minds, but rather it being an opportune time to capture sons and fathers while also capitalizing on the Flag Day holiday on June 14.
The pic, directed by Aaron Schneider, and also adapted by Hanks from the C.S. Forester novel, follows a US Navy skipper who must lead an Allied convoy being stalked by Nazi U-boat wolf packs. Elisabeth Shue also stars. Gary Goetzman produces. EPs are Jason Cloth, David Coatsworth, Aaron L. Gilbert, Sanping Han, Michael Jackman, Milan Popelka, Aaron Ryder, Steve Shareshian, and Alex Zhang.
