Even if you’re not up on your History, you should at least know the story of the USS Indianapolis from watching Jaws. It’s the ship Quint was on. I certainly can’t tell the story as well as he did, but essentially it’s about a bunch of soldiers who get eaten by sharks after the Japanese sink their ship.
Now there’s a movie about the ordeal called USS Indianapolis: Men of Honor. This first poster for it should tell you everything you need to know:
Nicolas Cage, Thomas Jane, and Tom Sizemore in a movie directed by Mario Van Peeples? AND it’s produced by Michael Mendelsohn and Richard Rionda Del Castro? Sign me up! USS Indianapolis: Men of Honor should come out sometime in 2016, though I’m not sure if that means it’s hitting theaters, VOD, or straight to TBS.
