Greyhound (2019)

Recommended Posts

Heyyyyyy...pretty cool! I love Tom Hanks....any war movie that can be made to bring light to history and to veterans is good in my book.

 

Hopefully we can all just enjoy it and not worry about whether its a front seam helmet or count the stitches in the haversack....lets just enjoy it and leave some positive feedback for the forum community!


Actively collecting:

13th USAAF uniforms and groups/medal groups!

307th BG, 5th BG, 11th BG, 42nd BG

Also looking for:

WWII Far East Air Force uniforms/groups!

Any Pacific Army Air Force Groups to 5th, 7th, 10th, 14th, 20th AAF

Collecting CBI and ATC Pacific Army Air Force groups

Tom Hanks like Denzel Washington don't play or produce crap movies

 

Some may disagree but that's my opinion.

 

It's a shame about The Mighty Eighth series.. last time I heard it was dead in the water

 

Maybe that has since changed.... ?

As far as I know John Orloff is still playing with the script to mini series.

Man I hope so! It would be amazing if it's coming into fruition

 

A bunch of people that were supposedly "in the know" about it were commenting on a few of the military pages on the book of faces a few months back

 

I took it with a grain of salt but I haven't found any legitimate info/updates

 

Do you have any?

John Orloff Twitter- it's from Feb 15th 2018. It's the last thing I've seen from a reliable source.

 

"Got a lot of worried Qs about "Masters." Have no fear, I am chewing gum and walking at the same time! There is always down time in one project. No worries-- MASTERS OF THE AIR is going full throttle. But at the same time, so is WATERGATE. Happiest writer in show biz? Me."

 

Then this was from May 7th...

 

"One of the most exciting things for me about MASTERS, is the chance to explore/document the SCALE of WW2... and why, on VE Day, 73 years ago today, NYC and London were like this... EVERYONE celebrated. The world was united in joy (er, mostly)"

9/6/2018

 

"So still getting a lot of questions on "Masters of the Air." Will hopefully have an update soon. Standby." - John Orloff, script writer.

Hahaha, they were filming on one of the fletcher class destroyers. It wasn't the Cassin Young though, it looked like she was still in her ww2 configuration. I'll try to find out which one it was

It was the USS Kidd in Baton Rouge. I worked as an extra on it. Hard work but great fun!

So Looking forward to this! It has that "right" feel to it and I am going to go nuts seeing Fletchers on the big screen. Looks a little World of Warships, but should really impress! Now the conning tower graphics on the subs and the naval black uniform leave something to be desired to say the least......

Still on for May 8, release day? But if so, in home on demand, no theater with the Coronavirus. What's going on with the Mel Gibson Laffey movie? Is it still on the drawing board or scrapped?

Greyhound got bumped to June 12 for now. I doubt it will be released to on demand only. Any film that's expected to do well, the studios will just delay it's release.

Wish it were about the Pacific..... My bias I guess but will still go see it.
