‘The Finest Hours’ with Chris Pine to Start Filming in Massachusetts

Production is scheduled to begin in September on The Finest Hours, starring Chris Pine, Academy Award® and Golden Globe® nominee Casey Affleck and Holliday Grainger. The thriller, which will be directed by Craig Gillespie, will shoot on location in Quincy and Chatham, Massachusetts.

In February of 1952, one of the worst storms to ever hit the East Coast struck New England, damaging an oil tanker off the coast of Cape Cod and literally ripping it in half. On a small lifeboat faced with frigid temperatures and 70-foot high waves, four members of the Coast Guard set out to rescue the more than 30 stranded sailors trapped aboard the rapidly-sinking vessel. The Finest Hours is the story of their heroic mission, which is still considered the greatest small boat rescue in Coast Guard history.
