EXCLUSIVE: While the summer dealmaking has tapered off in the dog days of August, a big one went down yesterday. In a deal worth high-six against seven-figures, Walt Disney Pictures acquired a package to make a movie out of the bestselling book The Finest Hours, with Oscar-nominated The Fighter scribes Paul Tamasy and Eric Johnson to write the story of a daring Coast Guard rescue off Cape Cod in 1952. The project was set up through Jim Whitaker's Entertainment and he will produce with Dorothy Aufiero, who worked with the writers as the original producer of The Fighter.

Published in 2009 by Scribner, the Casey Sherman and Michael J. Tougias-authored book tells the story of a Coast Guard rescue undertaken after two oil tankers were torn in half by treacherous waves during a deadly nor'easter blizzard. There were four rescue efforts, including two undertaken by a handful of men on two old, wooden, motorized 36-foot lifeboats. The men understood they had no business fighting frozen gale winds and seas but went anyway in an attempt to rescue the 84 men who were floating on halves of the cracked and sinking oil tankers.

Whitaker, the former Imagine Entertainment exec who directed the 9/11 documentary Rebirth that Showtime airs on Sept. 11, set up the project under his first-look producing deal at Disney. There, he's in post-production on the Peter Hedges-directed The Odd Life of Timothy Green and is developing the action thriller Unlimited with Fringe writer Brad Caleb Kane and Hexum with Children of Men's David Arata. Whitaker described the book as "a riveting story of courage, and the fact that it's true makes it all the more compelling," he said. "Its characters and themes epitomize the stories we gravitate towards and are eager to produce at Disney."

The deal was brokered by Verve in tandem with Gotham Group's Ellen Goldsmith Vein and Michael Prevett.

La Disney produrrà The Finest Hours

La Disney ha acquisito i diritti di The Finest Hours, il bestseller scritto da Casey Sherman e Michael J. Tougias, che racconta dell'avventuroso - quanto vero - salvataggio realizzato dalla guardia costiera per riportare a terra 84 membri dell'equipaggio di due petroliere, spezzate in due da onde mastodontiche.

Il film sarà sceneggiato da Paul Tamasy ed Eric Johnson, già dietro al successo di The Fighter. Jim Whitaker e Dorothy Alfiero produrranno la pellicola.

Ambientato nel 1952 a Cape Code, il film mostrerà come la guardia costiera effettuò l'operazione di salvataggio usando soltanto due scialuppe di legno.

BOARDWALK EMPIRE Director Tim Van Patten to Helm Disney’s Coast Guard Drama THE FINEST HOURS
by Adam Chitwood Posted: September 20th, 2012 at 12:40 pm



Director Tim Van Patten is looking to take the helm of Disney’s The Finest Hours. The film is based on the bestselling book of the same name by Casey Sherman and Michael Tougias that recounts the 1952 Coast Guard rescue mission to recover 84 men trapped in a deadly nor’easter blizzard. Two WWII oil tankers were ripped in half, leaving four halves of ship floating aimlessly through the storm carrying the disaster’s only survivors. The brave Coast Guard men set out on a suicide rescue mission, some on old wooden motorized lifeboats, in order to recover the lost seamen. The Fighter scribes Paul Tamasy and Eric Johnson were set to write the script last summer, but Variety’s report doesn’t specify whether Van Patten will perform a rewrite.

Van Patten is currently an executive producer and principal director on HBO’s Boardwalk Empire and has previously helmed episodes of Game of Thrones, The Pacific, and The Wire. He was one of the main directors on The Sopranos throughout the series run, helming the seminal season four episode “Whoever Did This,” so he has a fantastic resume that speaks to his potential as a film director. Hit the jump to read the synopsis for The Finest Hours.

Here’s a synopsis for the novel The Finest Hours:

In a 1952 nor’easter, the distress of two ships off Cape Cod initiated a dramatic Coast Guard operation recounted here by coauthors Tougias and Sherman. Both vessels were World War II surplus, cheaply built, unwisely kept in service, and broken in two by the storm. All four halves floated, for the moment, and the authors’ narrative accordingly tracks four separate search-and-rescue efforts that form the complete story. The most prominent, in the press at the time and in official honors conferred afterward, concerned one motorized lifeboat, a puny 36 feet long and manned by four men, dispatched to do battle with the maelstrom’s towering waves. This is the seascape of The Perfect Storm, and the authors do justice to the peril in a tight account of the action. Plotting the course of CG36500, the utilitarian name of the lifeboat captained by Bernie Webber (interviewed for this book), Tougias and Sherman reach their peak of tension in the sink-or-swim moments when mariners abandoned ship and chanced their lives on their rescuers’ skill and bravery.

Chris Pine Targets True Coast Guard Drama The Finest Hours

Although RED and R.I.P.D. helmer Robert Schwentke was said to be eyeing the project last year, The Hollywood Reporter today brings word that Walt Disney Pictures is looking at setting Craig Gillespie (the man behind their upcoming true sports story Million Dollar Arm) to direct the period coast guard rescue story The Finest Hours. What's more, they're looking at setting Star Trek's Chris Pine to headline.

The film, adapted by Paul Tamasy and Eric Johnson, is based on the book by Casey Sherman and Michael J. Touglas, officially described as follows:

In the winter of 1952, New England was battered by the most brutal nor'easter in years. As the weather wreaked havoc on land, the freezing Atlantic became a wind-whipped zone of peril, setting the stage for one of the most heroic rescue stories ever lived.

In the early hours of Monday, February 18, while the storm raged, two oil tankers, the Pendleton and the Fort Mercer, found themselves in the same horrifying predicament. Built with "dirty steel," and not prepared to withstand such ferocious seas, both tankers split in two, leaving the dozens of men on board utterly at the Atlantic's mercy. The Finest Hours is the gripping, true story of the valiant attempt to rescue the souls huddling inside the broken halves of the two ships.

The spellbinding tale is overflowing with breathtaking scenes, as boats capsize, bows and sterns crash into one another, and men hurl themselves into the raging sea in their terrifying battle for survival.

Not all of the eighty-four men caught at sea in the midst of that brutal storm survived, but considering the odds, it's a miracle—and a testament to their bravery—that any came home to tell their tales at all.

Jim Whitaker is attached to produce.

THE FINEST HOURS Starring Chris Pine, Casey Affleck and Holliday Grainger Nearing Production

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.
the-finest-hours-book-coverPine, 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.

Da BadTaste:
L'ultima tempesta: la Disney prevede una perdita di 75 milioni di dollari

"In mezzo ai trionfi dei progetti collegati ai brand Lucasfilm, Marvel, Pixar, alla straordinaria accoglienza riservata all’ultimo cartoon prodotto dalla Casa di Topolino, Zootropolis, alle stratosferiche vendite dei prodotti di merchandise e ai biglietti staccati alle casse dei parchi tematici, il dato negativo su L’Ultima Tempesta riferito dal CEO della Disney Bob Iger a margine della conferenza di Deutsche Bank Media, Internet e Telecom potrebbe avere un peso anche minore dello storico flop di Lone Ranger.

Stando a quanto riferito dall’executive, la pellicola diretta da Craig Gillespie (che in Italia arriverà dritta sul piccolo schermo saltando le sale cinematografiche) e interpretata da Chris Pine e Casey Affleck causerà una perdita pari a 75 milioni di dollari. Il budget della pellicola non è stato reso noto, ma di sicuro, tenendo conto delle parole di Iger, l’incasso worldwide di 40 milioni non è di sicuro bastato a coprire i costi di un lungometraggio che ha avuto bisogno di un notevole apporto di post-produzione.

La performance della pellicola, non ha però intaccato le rendite degli investitori e le prospettive di successo per un 2016 che – proprio grazie al già citato Zootropolis – si prospetta alquanto roseo."


Certo che non c'è da stupirsi se la Disney punta sui remake dei Classici quando ogni altro live-action che produce poi floppa...
