Paul Greengrass film will open New York Film Festival

The film is a biopic of Captain Richard Phillips who was taken hostage by Somali Pirates during the Maersk Alabama hijacking in 2009.
The 51st NYFF takes place between 27 September and 13 October.
A Somali man was sentenced to more than 33 years in prison for the pirate attack on the Maersk Alabama merchant ship.
Abdiwali Abdiqadir Muse was the only survivor of the crew of pirates who attacked the ship off Somalia's coast.

He was captured by the US Navy, whose sharpshooters killed three other pirates trying to run away on a lifeboat with Captain Phillips.
