With his latest job working with some of the biggest names in film (that would be Martin Scorsese's The Irishman) now finished, Stephen Graham is keeping with Hollywood royalty for a new gig. He'll join Tom Hanks in World War II tale Greyhound.

Based on a script by Hanks, itself adapted from CS Forester's novel The Good Shepherd, the movie follows career officer George Krause (Hanks), handed command of a Navy destroyer (the vessel of the title), but who will have to fight his own self doubt and personal demons to prove that he belongs in the captain's chair.

Get Low director Aaron Schneider is attached to make this one, and FilmNation has stumped up the $30 million he needs to shoot the film, though Deadline's report doesn't mention when the cameras will roll.

Graham, who is playing someone named Charlie Cole in Greyhound, will be on our screens in Walk Like A Panther (out this Friday) and Funny Cow (due 20 April).
