Sandra Bullock and Tom Hanks in Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close

Big screen adaptation of Jonathan Safran Foer‘s 2005 novel Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close is coming!

Tom Hanks and Sandra Bullock

We already know that The Reader director Stephen Daldry is in charge for the project but today we’re here to report that Sandra Bullock and Tom Hanks are in talks to star in it! Now, how does it sound? Like another Oscar nomination is coming or…? The script has been penned by Eric Roth (yes, from Forrest Gump), and the story follows: “Oskar Schell, an inventor, Francophile, tambourine player, Shakespearean actor, jeweler, pacifist, correspondent with Stephen Hawking and Ringo Starr. He is nine years old. And he is on an urgent, secret search through the five boroughs of New York. His mission is to find the lock that fits a mysterious key belonging to his father, who died in the World Trade Center on 9/11. An inspired innocent, Oskar is alternately endearing, exasperating, and hilarious as he careens from Central Park to Coney Island to Harlem on his search. Along the way he is always dreaming up inventions to keep those he loves safe from harm. What about a birdseed shirt to let you fly away? What if you could actually hear everyone’s heartbeat? His goal is hopeful, but the past speaks a loud warning in stories of those who’ve lost loved ones before. As Oskar roams New York, he encounters a motley assortment of humanity who are all survivors in their own way. He befriends a 103-year-old war reporter, a tour guide who never leaves the Empire State Building, and lovers enraptured or scorned. Ultimately, Oskar ends his journey where it began, at his father’s grave. But now he is accompanied by the silent stranger who has been renting the spare room of his grandmother’s apartment. They are there to dig up his father’s empty coffin.” Look, new Osk(c)ar in the game! Especially when we have another name involved in this project, producer Scott Rudin, (No Country for Old Men). Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close is set to begin filming in January, and we’ll definitely be right here with every new detail! Don’t go away!
