    Apple TV+ to release Tom Hanks naval drama ‘Greyhound’ on July 10

    Tom Hanks’ “Greyhound” is the most recent motion picture to skip theaters and head straight to streaming — in this case, to Apple Tv+. Deadline reported final month that Apple had picked up the film, which now has a release date of July 10.

    Sony had beforehand pushed again the movie’s release a number of instances, most not long ago settling on June 19 (Father’s Day weekend).

    Of class, those strategies have been scuttled by the COVID-19 pandemic and ensuing theatrical closures. Though theaters are preparing to reopen with new social distancing measures, with Warner Bros’ “Tenet” and Disney’s “Mulan” scheduled for release in July, it remains to be found no matter whether moviegoers are completely ready to return.

    Meanwhile, studios have taken different procedures for various films — delaying some, accelerating VOD/streaming releases for other people and either skipping theaters for their very own streaming solutions (in the case of Disney) or selling movies to streamers (in the situation of Netflix and “The Lovebirds”). Sony went the latter route, with “Greyhound” likely to Apple.

    Aaron Schneider directed the movie, though Hanks wrote the screenplay based on C.S. Forester’s novel “The Good Shepherd.” He also stars as a initially-time Naval captain throughout Entire world War II who has to defend a convoy of 37 ships from Nazi U-boats.

    Apple was previously performing with Hanks on “Masters of Air,” a Earth War II series government made by Hanks, Gary Goetzman (who also created “Greyhound”) and Steven Spielberg.
