An open casting call has been scheduled for the upcoming Sony Pictures WWII drama, Greyhound. The film will star Academy-Award winner Tom Hanks who also scripted the feature. Hanks’ Playtone partner Gary Goetzman will produce and Aaron Schneider (Get Low) will direct. The story follows George Kraus (Hanks), a career Navy officer finally given command of a Navy destroyer USS Greyhound where, along with the enemy he fights his self-doubts and personal demons to prove he belongs. The story takes place as the Greyhound is escorting a military convoy across the Atlantic Ocean in 1942, when the shipping lanes between America and its European allies were imperiled by German submarines.
