Interview: Jim Whitaker, The Finest Hours


“Talking to actors and filmmakers on a set visit is tons of fun, but here’s the truth: you only get so much time with them, because while you’re sitting pretty in a tent taking notes and making small talk with your fellow journalists, they’re making a movie (which, in the case of Craig Gillespie’s The Finest Hours, amounts to “getting waterlogged every day for nearly two months in a Quincy warehouse on the cusp of winter”). So thank goodness for Jim Whitaker, one of the producers on the film, who gave us hours of his time regaling us with anecdotes about the shoot itself as well as the actual 1952 SS Pendleton rescue mission.” (Via Screen Rant.)
