Tom Hanks is tackling an adaptation of the international best-selling novel A Man Called Ove.

Hanks is attached to star in the project and will produce with his Playtone banner partner Gary Goetzman. Rita Wilson, Hanks’ wife and frequent producing partner, is also producing along with Fredrik Wikstrom Nicastro, it was announced Thursday. Nicastro hails from SF Studios, one of the companies behind the upcoming tennis drama Borg vs. McEnroe. He also executive produced the Swedish-language adaptation.

The 2012 book by Fredrik Backman centers on a cantankerous widower who seems to revel in his bitterness and loneliness even as his frequent attempts at suicide seem to be thwarted by bad timing and bad luck. His life, however, takes a turn toward the unexpected when a mixed-race couple with two young daughters move into the neighborhood, leading to a heartwarming and life-affirming friendship. [Source]

I’ve updated the gallery with high quality screencaptures of Tom in his latest movie The Circle. The movie itself didn’t do well in the box office but it was a great opportunity to see Tom in the same movie as young stars like John BoyegaEmma Watson.

Tom Hanks and Meryl Streep are teaming with Steven Spielberg on the Pentagon Papers drama The Post.

The feature will focus on The Washington Post’s role in publishing the infamous study about America’s role in the Vietnam War, centering on the work of Post editor Ben Bradlee (Hanks) and publisher Kay Graham (Streep).

Spielberg will direct from a spec script by Liz Hannah, which was initially picked up by Amy Pascal to produce through her Pascal Pictures banner.

Pascal and Spielberg will produce, along with Kristie Macosko Krieger. Fox and Amblin Entertainment will co-finance the feature, with Fox handling domestic distribution and Amblin taking on international duties.

Streep and Spielberg previously worked together on A.I., while Hanks and the director have collaborated on a number of projects including Catch Me If You Can, The Terminal and, most recently, Bridge of Spies. The Post marks the first time that Streep and Hanks will share the big screen.

The trio, who boast a collective nine Oscar wins, will add The Post to their already packed schedules. [Source]
