Shane, Romano float ‘Lifeboat’ film

Duo acquire WWII story from Justiz, Sikes

Michel Shane and Anthony Romano (“I Robot,” “Catch Me if You Can”) are developing “Lifeboat 13,” based on the WWII story of the four chaplains who gave their lives during the 1943 sinking of the Dorchester after it was torpedoed by a U-boat.

Shane and Romano have acquired the screenplay by Michael Justiz and Steven Sikes, based on a story by Justiz, Sikes and David Fox. The script’s inspired by the story of a rabbi, a Catholic priest and two Protestant ministers, as well as an African-American Coast Guardsman, who gave up their life jackets as the Dorchester sunk off the Greenland coast in 36-degree waters.
