Tom Hanks’ upcoming World War II naval drama, Greyhound, starring our Tom Brittney will now premiere on Apple TV+. This will mark the biggest feature film commitment made by Apple to premiere on their streaming service.
Written by and starring Tom Hanks, Greyhound is based on the 1955 novel, The Good Shepherd by C. S. Forester. The film follows a US Navy Commander on his first war-time assignment in command of a multi-national escort group defending a merchant ship convoy under attack by submarines in early 1942 during the Battle of the Atlantic, only months after the US officially entered World War II.
Tom Brittney plays Watson, a young Lieutenant aboard the submarine alongside Hanks.
Apple TV+ is yet to announce a release date, although it is anticipated to be later this year.
