Disney has set the release date for its disaster-at-sea feature The Finest Hours for April 15, 2016. The 3-D drama from filmmaker Craig Gillespie chronicles the massive rescue mission that’s launched when a pair of oil tankers split in two off the coast of Cape Cod in 1952. The feature, based on the best-selling book by Casey Sherman and Michael J. Tougias, stars Chris Pine, Casey Affleck and Eric Bana. Paul Tamasy and Eric Johnson wrote the initial draft of The Finest Hours, and Scott Silver wrote the latest greenlit version.
