Tom Hanks back to WWII for In the Garden of Beasts

4 years agoby:

If there are two things Tom Hanks loves, it's World War II and the moon. The actor has devoted much of his time to both of them, starring in films about them, but also producing or narrating other features focusing on them, and now that trend continues.

Hanks has just partnered with Universal to option WWII novel, whose full title is THE GARDEN OF BEASTS: LOVE, TERROR AND AN AMERICAN FAMILY IN HITLER'S BERLIN. As that won't fit on many posters, it will probably be shortened to IN THE GARDEN OF BEASTS.

The story follows US Ambassador William Dodd living in Berlin under Hitler, but having to deal with the more pressing problem of his socialite daughter who had affairs with characters ranging from a Gestapo official to a Soviet spy.

Sounds like a cool story, and if Hanks does end up starring, it will likely be a very memorable role for him.

This sounds decent. With the right director, this could be cool.

Tidbit = "Larry Crowne" was bloated, unbelievable, and and too long. Most of my issues are spoilery, so I shall try to keep this contained to smaller issues- Bryan Cranston's character was superfluous and add nothing. The reason Larry gets fired is simply begging for a wrongful termination suit, and the romance between Larry and Roberts' character was rushed. As stated, I have several more spoilery problems, but with all this

Any mixture of Hanks & WWII is kick-ass in my book

Sounds like it could be a very good thirller/drama. Then again...I've always been such a huge fan of Hanks' that I'd pay to see him (along w/ my other faves K.Spacey & C.Bale) read from a phonebook while wearing a damn raincoat! haha.

XtraTid: Yes, just rented "Larry Crowne" & watched it this morning. Very good, very down-to-earth, realistic comedy/drama. Plan to buy it near to Xmas.
