Sony Pictures has changed the release date of Tom Hanks war drama “Greyhound” from Feb. 8 to March 22.
It’s the second change of date for “Greyhound,” which was originally set for an April 5 opening. “Greyhound,” which stars Hanks, is based on C.S. Forester’s novel “The Good Shepherd.” Aaron Schneider is directing from Hanks’ script.
The film is being produced by Playtone’s Gary Goetzman and Hanks. FilmNation Entertainment’s Aaron Ryder, Playtone’s Steven Shareshian, and David Coatsworth serve as executive producers. FilmNation sold worldwide rights to Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisitions (SPWA), which is financing in association with Bron Creative, Sycamore Pictures, and Zhengfu Pictures.
“Greyhound” is set in the early days of World War II as an international convoy of 37 Allied ships, led by Hanks’ Capt. Ernest Krause, crosses the treacherous North Atlantic while being hotly pursued by wolf packs of Nazi submarines.
