Walt Disney Pictures is set to begin Production on their newest movie “The Finest Hour”.

In February of 1952, the East Coast was hit with one of its worst storms.  Off the coast of Cape Cod, New England, an oil tanker was damaged and ripped in half.  “The Finest Hour” tells the story of four Coast Guard members who set out in freezing weather and 70-foot waves on a small lifeboat to rescue 30 stranded sailors who were trapped on a sinking ship.  This rescue is considered to be the greatest small boat rescue in the history of the Coast Guard.

The film is directed by Craig Gillespie (“Million Dollar Arm,” “Lars and the Real Girl”), and will be shot on location in Quincy and Chatham, Massachusetts, alongside producers Jim Whitaker (“Cinderella Man”) and Dorothy Aufiero (“The Fighter”). The screenplay was written by Academy Award® nominees Paul Tamsay & Eric Johnson (“The Fighter”) and Academy Award nominee Scott Silver (“The Fighter,” “8 Mile”) and is based on the book by Casey Sherman and Michael J. Tougias.

“The Finest Hour” is set to hit theatres in the Fall of 2015 and stars Chris Pine (“Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit,” “Star Trek”), Academy Award® and Golden Globe® nominee Casey Affleck (“The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford,” “Ocean’s Thirteen”) and Holliday Grainger (“Cinderella,” “Bonnie & Clyde”).
