Sully Sullenberger options his book for movie
"Sully" the movie may soon come to a screen near you.
Airline captain and Bay Area resident Sully Sullenberger has agreed to option the rights to his memoir.
In the book, "Highest Duty," Sullenberger recounts the day when birds disabled the engines on US Airways flight 1549.
Sully landed the plane safely on the Hudson, saving the lives of all 155 passengers.
Sullenberger was reluctant to sell the rights to his book, until he met Harrison Ford who advised him to go with the team that produced "Indiana Jones."
