Kyle Gallner

Disney had already slated Chris Pine and Casey Affleck to star in their thrilling drama The Finest Hours, the story set back in 1952 and based on the non-fiction book of the same name about how two oil tankers were split in two, dumping all 84 of their crew members into the swirling sea, caught in the middle of a nor'easter, a macro-scale storm along the upper East Coast of the US and Atlantic Canada. On a small lifeboat faced with freezing cold and 70-foot high waves, four members of the Coast Guard set out to rescue the more than 30 stranded sailors trapped aboard the vessel. Now producion has begun in Quincy and Chatham, Massachusetts and two more cast members have been revealed as the cameras start rolling.

The press release from Disney reveals that Holliday Grainger (Great Expectations, Anna Karenina, Jane Eyre) will have an unspecified role in the film that has Disney's Million Dollar Arm director Craig Gillespie at the helm. In addition, Deadline has word that Kyle Gallner (A Nightmare on Elm Street, Red State, Veronica Mars) has also landed a role as the rescue-boat’s engine man, who feels like he has a lot to prove during this stressful mission. Academy Award nominees Paul Tamsay & Eric Johnson (The Fighter) and Academy Award nominee Scott Silver (also of The Fighter and 8 Mile) wrote the script, and this sounds like the kind of exciting live-action film that Disney rarely makes anymore, so we're hoping for the best.

Hopefully Pine can finally make a good film that is not a STAR TREK joint.
