Clint Eastwood/Tom Hanks project "Sully" starts filming in Atlanta

"Sully," a new movie directed by Clint Eastwood and starring Tom Hanks as the heroic airline pilot Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger, takes off in metro Atlanta this week.

The project did some advance work in New York, since that is where the incredible events of Jan. 15, 2009 happened. Exhibiting extraordinary courage and grace under pressure, Sully landed US Airways Flight 1549 on the Hudson River after his plane was disabled by a flock of geese.

Everyone on board survived.

We're told the movie will work in Georgia for several weeks at least, and a key scene is happening here this week. (No spoilers!)

The movie needs some teen female extras. Details are below.
