The Finest Hours is still in early production but there have been rumors that the director for the film will be Craig Gillespie.
For those who are not familiar with the book version of The Finest Hours, Disney has provided a brief synopsis of what the film will focus on.
‘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.’ – Walt Disney Studios
