Today it was announced that Richard Phillips, the Captain of the ship who fought off the pirates, and then was rescued signed with Creative Artists Agency. They will be helping him navigate the waters of film and book deals.
This is just one example of how life is becoming a movie. I mean, it's not that surprising considering the whole saga of Captain Phillips plays like a summer blockbuster. Pirates, courageous crew members, badass NAVY SEALS, noble captains, bravery, valor, you know the usual dope action movie business. I mean how can Hollywood resist?
The really interesting question here though regards the future of Captain Phillips. Is he going to continue at Sea, or will the waters of Hollywood prove more thrilling and perhaps more profitable?
