We first found out that Chris Pine was in talks for Disney’s The Finest Hours back in April, but now the project has its core cast and is set to begin production this month in Quincy and Chatham, Massachusetts. The screenplay comes from Academy Award nominees Paul Tamsay, Eric Johnson and Scott Silver and is based on the Casey Sherman and Michael J. Tougias book, The Finest Hours: The True Story of the U.S. Coast Guard’s Most Daring Sea Rescue, which recalls what happened when two oil tankers were pummeled by a vicious nor’easter in the winter of 1952 and the Coast Guard was dispatched to rescue them. Hit the jump for more.
Pine, Casey Affleck and Holliday Grainger are all on board to star for director Craig Gillespie, but the press release makes no mention of who they’re playing. Deadline is also reporting that Kyle Gallner is in the mix as well. Apparently he’ll be taking the role of the Coast Guard rescue boat’s engineman who feels like he’s got a lot to prove during this mission.
The Finest Hour will hit theaters in the fall of 2015. Here’s the official synopsis for the film:
In February of 1952, one of the worst storms to ever hit the East Coast struck New England, damaging an oil tanker off the coast of Cape Cod and literally ripping it in half. On a small lifeboat faced with frigid temperatures and 70-foot high waves, four members of the Coast Guard set out to rescue the more than 30 stranded sailors trapped aboard the rapidly-sinking vessel. “The Finest Hours” is the story of their heroic mission, which is still considered the greatest small boat rescue in Coast Guard history.

TIFF Review: Lone Scherfig’s ‘The Riot Club’
No worries though, because Max happily switches rooms and turns his attention on flirting with Lauren (Holliday Grainger).
Apart from the performances, there is nothing much to latch onto in ‘The Riot Club.’ The bitter sense of humor entertains, but outstays its welcome halfway through, while some of the incidents that occur in The Bull Head are appropriately distasteful and will doubtlessly conjure up the right kind of heated reactions from the audience, one in particular concerning Lauren. At one point, Alistair drunkenly declares how much he hates poor people. The simplicity and shallowness of this line perfectly sums up the whole point of the film. Ethical jabs at one of the most prominent first world countries in the world, and the foundations that helped spawn an entire empire, are exposed, at times in entertaining fashion, but rarely saying anything new. Some scenes are so blatantly direct; they almost had us on our feet shouting, “OK! We get it! Can you move on now?” But it never does.
The Riot Club, review: ‘hilarious but lacking political bite’
Whereas on stage the landlord’s daughter (Downton Abbey’s Jessica Brown Findlay, down-poshed) was the one eventually propositioned for a ludicrous amount of money, Wade here brings in another fresher, the “bootstrappy regional” sympathetically played by Holliday Grainger, to suffer this indignity. Her arrival comes as a shock to Miles, her nominal new boyfriend, whose phone has been wickedly hijacked to send a fake SOS text and beckon her along.
