(Newser) – Clint Eastwood has picked his next project as a director—the story of how Capt. Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger landed his US Airways plane safely in the Hudson River in 2009, reports the Hollywood Reporter. The 85-year-old Eastwood is coming off American Sniper, which grossed more than a half-billion dollars to become the most successful movie with a war theme ever, notes USA Today. No word yet on when Miracle on the Hudson will be out, or who will play Sully, but shooting begins in the fall.
