Tom Hanks’s ‘Captain Phillips’ on to Malta

Actor Tom Hanks appears to be finished with Massachusetts - at least for now. Hanks’s movie “Captain Phillips,’’ in which he plays real-life Captain Richard Phillips, who survived being kidnapped by Somali pirates in 2009, has been filming locally but will move to Malta for the next few months, according to Malta Today. “Captain Phillips’’ is being directed by Paul Greengrass, who helmed “The Bourne Supremacy’’ and “The Bourne Ultimatum,’’ with a screenplay by Billy Ray, who co-wrote the film “State of Play,’’ which starred Ben Affleck.
