Tom Hanks to play the President of the United States ?
November 20, 2011
After playing a US Congressman in Charlie Wilson's War, will Tom Hanks play the President of the United States for the first time in his career ? It's a possibility. Indeed, Tom Hanks has been approached by Paramount Studio to play the President of the United States in a movie called Partiot Down, which will be produced by Kevin Walsh and Brad Weston.
The movie will be an action-thriller that centers on a U.S. President who has to go on run in Afghanistan after Air Force One gets shot down as it was flying over the country.
Ian Stone, who’s worked as a second assistant director on huge films like There Will Be Blood, Munich, War of the Worlds, and most recently The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn, will be making his writing debut with Patriot Down.
Tom Hanks is not officially attached to the project as he's not answered yet whether or not he will accept the part and the movie is still in its early stage of development. This could also be just one among many offers he gets...
How about you, would you like to see Tom Hanks play the President of the United States ?
