Tom Hanks war drama 'Greyhound' set for July release
The war drama is inspired by real-life events
Veteran actor Tom Hanks' muchanticipated movie Greyhound is set to make its global debut on July 10 and will premiere on Apple TV Plus, reported Variety.
The war drama was previously set for a Father's Day theatrical release; however,
the new announcement was made on Thursday a month after Apple TV Plus bought worldwide rights from Sony Pictures for the film.
Inspired by real-life events, the film is directed by Aaron Schneider from a
screenplay by Hanks. In April, the makers of the flick released a two-minutes and 44-sec long trailer of the film.
In the trailer, the 63-year-old actor is seen as a first-time captain who leads a
convoy of allied ships carrying thousands of soldiers across to the front line.
Meanwhile, the Forrest Gump actor and wife Rita Wilson became one of the first
celebrated Hollywood personalities to be diagnosed with Covid-19.
They have since then been spreading awareness about the virus and sharing their
journey of recovery. After recovery, Hanks also donated his blood plasma for research work.
