Las year, 85 year-old director Clint Eastwood directed the highest grossing film of 2014, American Sniper, which made over $350 million worldwide.
Now, Eastwood has announced that he will be making another biopic about a national hero for his next project, but this one will likely be far less controversial. He will be profiling Captain Chesley “Sully” Sullenberg, the pilot who managed to land U.S. Airways Flight 1549 in the Hudson River in January of 2009 after the plane’s engines blew out when birds flew into them.
Sullenberg was able to land the plane without losing the lives of anyone onboard, and he has been celebrated as a national hero ever since. The film will be adapted from the pilot’s memoir, Highest Duty: My Search For What Really Matters. It will be adapted by screenwriter Todd Komarnicki.

Of course, any project that Eastwood takes up from now on will be seen as “controversial,” since liberals everywhere turned on him once and for all when he celebrated Chris Kyle in American Sniper. Eastwood, however, doesn’t give a hoot what liberals think, and he will continue to make films celebrating patriotic Americans until the day he dies!
