Doug Liman, director of Bourne Identity and Mr. & Mrs. Smith, saved three people from the Hudson River early Thursday morning after a cargo ship slammed their speedboat. According to the New York Daily News, Doug Liman and four pals were on his sailboat celebrating the wrap of his latest movie, Sean Penn-starrer Fair Game, when they spotted a ship speeding towards a tiny vessel. Liman and his friends searched the dark, choppy waters for the people who jumped off the boat when it was hit by the ship. Liman used a life ring to pull them to safety on his boat. “I make action movies for a living,” Liman said. “If I had Jason Bourne survive that, people would start throwing popcorn at the screen… These people were extremely lucky.”
