Clint Eastwood Piloting Captain Sully Sullenberger Biopic

After American Sniper became a stunning box office success for Warner Bros. early this year, the studio has set its director Clint Eastwood for another biopic. The prolific filmmaker will helm an untitled film that tells the true story of Captain Chesley ‘Sully’ Sullenberger, the American pilot who heroically landed a filled plane in the Hudson River after it malfunctioned mid-flight.

Sullenberger became a national hero back in 2009 when he pulled off a tricky emergency landing in the Hudson River off Manhattan when his aircraft, climbing out of Laguardia Airport, struck a flock of Canadian geese, disabling both engines. All passengers and crew members survived the landing.

Producer Frank Marshall acquired the rights to Sullenberger and Jeffrey Zaslow’s book back in 2010 and has been developing the project ever since. Allyn Stewart is also attached to produce.

No stars have come into focus yet, but with Eastwood sitting behind the camera,

Live Cricket: Friends Life T20 Quarter Finals

4pm, Sky Sports Ashes

Traditional cricket fans harrumph at the shorter version of the game; unsurprisingly, with team names such as the Sussex Sharks and Nottingham Outlaws. But, though the current Ashes series has exhibited the joys of "proper" cricket, there's no doubt that T20 does provide a thrill as the overs count down. At the time of writing the lineups for these quarter-finals are unknown, though Nottinghamshire and last year's winners Hampshire have impressed in the group stage. David Stubbs

8pm, BBC2

Populated by doddering characters and stylistically channelling the old-school British sitcom, Steve Delaney and Graham Linehan's

Judy Lewis Dies: Loretta Young/Clark Gable Out-of-Wedlock Daughter

Clark Gable, Loretta Young, The Call of the Wild Judy Lewis, out-of-wedlock daughter of Loretta Young and Clark Gable, died of cancer on Friday, Nov. 25, at a retirement home in the Philadelphia suburb of Gladwyne. She was 76. Young, who was an ardent Catholic, and Gable, then married to Maria Franklin Langham (17 years his senior) had an affair while starring in William A. Wellman's 1935 adventure drama The Call of the Wild. Young had just turned 22, Gable was 34. In a manner similar to the absurd stories of so many Hollywood melodramas of the period, after learning of her pregnancy Young took off for Europe. Upon her return months later, she was reported ill and convalescing at a hospital in the Los Angeles suburb of Venice, where Judy was born Nov. 6, 1935. When the girl was almost two, Young officially adopted her (and a boy, later returned) from an orphanage in San Francisco.
