Cowboy Hanks

06.16.2004

I find it surprising that Tom Hanks, Hollywood's everyman, hasn't yet starred in a Western. He's done just about every other type of movie there is (though no sci-fi thriller yet either) but no Western. Well that's all about to change. Hanks and Julianne Moore are set to star in the Western BOONE'S LICK for director Lasse Hallstrom. The film is based on the novel by Larry McMurtry about a woman and her brother-in-law who travel from Missouri to Wyoming via covered wagon to meet up with her husband/his brother. But, and here's the rub, the pair fall in love along the way. Hanks has been looking to adapt the project for some time and has been searching for an actress and director to work with. Unfortunately, availabilities in the trio's schedules won't allow them to begin work on the project until about this time next year. Hanks can be seen next this Friday in THE TERMINAL and this holiday season in THE POLAR EXPRESS. Hallstrom's next film, AN UNFINISHED LIFE with Robert Redford and Jennifer Lopez is scheduled for release this Christmas.
