Earlier in May, Apple paid Sony $70 million for the streaming rights to a new Tom Hanks film, called ‘Greyhound’ which follows George Krause in WWII. The film will be launching on Apple TV+ on the 10th July.
Apple now has the rights for fifteen years, but Sony has retained the rights in China.
Inspired by real events, Captain Ernest Krause (Tom Hanks) leads an international convoy of 37 ships on a treacherous mission across The Atlantic to deliver thousands of soldiers and much-needed supplies to Allied forces. Stephen Graham, Rob Morgan, and Elisabeth Shue star alongside Hanks. The Apple Original film was directed by Aaron Schneider and produced by Gary Goetzman.
