Hanks burns books?

08.06.2007

Tom Hanks Is Tom Hanks about to blow our minds by becoming a conflicted firefighter who rebels against an oppressive regime hellbent on incinerating the world's literature? According to AICN, he is. It seems prolific veteran writer/director Frank Darabont has set his sights on Hanks for the role of insurgent firefighter Guy Montag in FAHRENHEIT 451, his upcoming adaptation of the famed Ray Bradbury novel of the same name. The scooper who provided AICN with the info seems pretty confident that he or she is right but until official channels confirm it, take it as nothing more than a pretty intriguing rumor. Hanks is, in the meantime, busy prepping a slew of films (and likely one or two documentaries on the moon landing and World War II) and can next be seen in the dramedy THE GREAT BUCK HOWARD and the fact-based drama CHARLIE WILSON'S WAR.

When I read the topic I hoped this wouldn't be about Fahrenheit 451. Hanks is too goddamn old.

what about mad mel?

Hanks kind of bugs me with the smarmy factor, but this was apparently a huge dream for mel gibson to do...maybe since his fall from grace he isnt being considered anymore??? either way, loved the look of the original, wonder how "futuristic" this remake will be. lets not forget who turned a great read into a crap film (da vinci code, anyone?).c'mon tom, bachelor party 2 ????????

hum...

I would've been absolutely ecstatic 10 years ago. But...I dunno, seem to be overdosing on Hanks these last few years...

go for it

The two of them make great movies. I'd love to see the work together again.

If you put your finger over Tom Hanks' eyes the picture looks nothing like him. Airbrush-a-moondo.

i would love to see tom hanks star in farenheit 451. look how well The Green Mile turned out with Darabont at the helm and Tom Hanks in the lead. If this turns out even half as good as The Green Mile we are in for a great movie.

I always imagined Gut Montag as more of a Viggo Mortensen, or maybe the dude from Memento (shit, I forgot his name)

great book

This is one of the best books I've ever read, so adding credibility to this adaptation by picking up Hanks would make me really happy. Unless he phones it in "Da Vinci Code"-style. Then I will be less happy.
