October 29, 2010

It is said that Universal Pictures is looking at releasing Tom Hanks's second feature film Larry Crowne on Friday, July 1, 2011. They also posted on their website a more detailed synopsis for the film :

Until he was downsized, affable, amiable Larry Crowne was a superstar team leader at the big-box company where he's worked since his time in the Navy. Underwater on his mortgage and unclear on what to do with his suddenly free days, Larry heads to his local college to start over. There he becomes part of a colorful community of outcasts, also-rans and the overlooked all trying to find a better future for themselves… often moving around town in a herd of scooters. In his public-speaking class, Larry develops an unexpected crush on his teacher Mercedes Tainot, who has lost as much passion for teaching as she has for her husband.


Tom Hanks wrote, directed, produced the movie and starred alongside the likes of Julia Roberts, Taraji P. Henson, Pam Grier, Cedric the Entertainer, Bryan Cranston, George Takei, Wilmer Valderrama and The Pacific actors Jon Seda and Rami Malek. Rita Wilson, Tom Hanks's wife, has also a small part in the movie.
