The WWII battleship drama 'Greyhound' starring and written by Tom Hanks will premiere on Apple TV+, reports Deadline.

Originally on the Sony Pictures theatrical calendar for Father’s Day weekend, the film instead will become the biggest feature film commitment made by Apple to premiere on Apple TV+. It is the latest in a growing indication that Apple is making its move, and becoming as aggressive as any streamer or studio in auctions for the acquisition of films and TV projects.

In the film, Hanks plays George Krause, an officer given command of the Navy destroyer 'Greyhound' during the Battle of the Atlantic. Krause must fight self-doubts and personal demons, as well as the enemy, to prove he belongs.

Sony Pictures had acquired the world rights to the film and scheduled it for release on May 8. That was then moved to June 19; however, the coronavirus pandemic also put an end to those plans. A decision was made to alter course and the film was stealthily shopped around. A bidding battle ensued between the big streamers and it appears Apple has won in a deal worth around $70 million.

Apple hasn't set a release date for the film; however, it's expected to premiere soon. More details in the full report linked below.
