Biography

Though Captain Phillips describes himself as a "regular guy," the world knows that his actions were anything but ordinary after the pirate attack. His harrowing and heroic efforts to survive an ordeal that riveted the world were only matched in valor by his decisive actions to save his crew and the ship they sailed.

President Obama said, "I share the country's admiration for the bravery of Captain Phillips and his selfless concern for his crew. His courage is a model for all Americans."

The dramatic story of Captain Richard Phillips and his crew aboard the Maersk Alabama will be heading to the big screen courtesy of Columbia Pictures and an in-the-works book will tell of his experience and his remarkable rescue.
