Hannibal Classics is pleased to announce that we are partnering with Phantom Studios on a documentary about the USS Indianapolis, which will be a companion piece to our epic film USS Indianapolis: Men of Courage.
It was a role he had prepared his entire life to play, so when Matt Lanter heard that the incredible story of the USS Indianapolis was finally being made into a movie, he knew he had to be a part of it.
"There's been scripts floating around for 20 years, but when this movie got the green light I told my agent, 'Let's make sure to keep on this,' "
A movie about the U.S.S Indianapolis is in the works in Mobile and a local Gulfport man has an opportunity to portray his grandfather in the movie. News 25’s Kristen Durand shares the story of local World War II veteran Granville Crane as he remembers his days spent stranded in the South Pacific. Floating through shark infested water, not knowing if rescue is on the way: that’s how WWII Navy veteran Granville S. Crane felt after his ship, the U.S.S. Indianapolis, was struck by a Japanese torpedo.
