Nautical Classic Goes Hollywood

Director Ron Howard is taking on a film adaptation of Nathanial Philbrick’s National Book Award-winning In the Heart of the Sea. Based on the true story that inspired Herman Melville to pen Moby Dick, the film adaptation of In the Heart of the Storm will star Chris Hemsworth as Thor with a harpoon, at least one gigantic CGI white whale, and, judging from the trailer, quite a few visits to Davy Jones’s locker. Take a peek at the trailer here. The film opens March 25.
