Those of you who know me in the analog world know that I have been avidly following the progress of In the Heart of the Sea a Ron Howard film based on the award-winning book In the Heart of the Sea: the Tragedy of the Whaleship Essex by Nathaniel Philbrick. It is an essential read for those interested in the history of American Whaling or Nantucket and is the real-life basis for the story of Moby Dick. According to this article in USA Today, http://www.usatoday.com/story/life/movies/2014/10/14/in-the-heart-of-the-sea-movie-first-look/17242437/, they have set a release date of March 13, 2015 for the film.
Last week photos of the cast at the Nantucket Whaling Museum were seen courtesy of realronhoward on instagram like this one, http://instagram.com/p/t6HoL4l5Ie/. Press for the film has begun! Hopefully the trailer and further images and interviews are not far off.
