New project for Tom Hanks & Sandra Bullock ?

August 23, 2010


According to Variety, Warner Bros. and Paramount have partnered to adapt Jonathan Safran Foer's 2005 novel Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close. The story centers on Oskar Schell, a precocious 9-year-old boy who finds a key in a vase that belongs to his father (who perished in the North Tower in the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks) and searches to find the lock that goes with it.

While Stephen Daldry is to direct, Tom Hanks and Sandra Bullock have been offered to play the boy's parents and the filmmakers are just starting the search for their young lead.
However, negotiations for the lead parts have not started yet and no commitment has been made.

The screenplay has been written by Oscar winner Eric Roth (Forrest Gump, Benjamin Button) who adapted the novel, which involves multiple narrators and time frames, such as flashbacks.
Scott Rudin, who produces the movie, has been developing the project since 2005. His recent Oscar projects include No Country for Old Men, There Will be Blood, Julie & Julia, and Doubt.
The goal is to begin filming in January in New York.
