Default News of the World (Tom Hanks and Paul Greengrass)

Quote:
Paul Greengrass to Direct Tom Hanks in 'News of the World'



Luke Davies, who penned 'Lion,' wrote the script.

Paul Greengrass, coming off his drama 22 July, is in negotiations to team up with Tom Hanks to tackle News of the World, Fox 2000’s adaptation of the Paulette Jiles novel.

Luke Davies, who penned Lion, wrote the script for World, which is set in the aftermath of the Civil War and tells of a widowed news reader who travels from town to town in Texas announcing the news of the times. He is given a handsome sum to deliver a young orphan girl, whose parents were killed by a Native American tribe who then raised her as their own, to her family in San Antonio. The duo travel 400 miles through dangerous terrain, slowly developing bond that will be tested when the man must give the girl up to a relatives that not only don’t want her, have abusive plans for her.

No way I'm missing this. I think Captain Phillips was the best film Greengrass ever made, and Hanks' last great one.

Tom Hanks-Paul Greengrass ‘News Of The World’ Moves From Fox 2000 To Universal
by Mike Fleming Jr - April 9, 2019 11:21am


EXCLUSIVE: In the first project that has come unglued from Fox since the Disney acquisition, Universal Pictures has picked up rights to The News of The World, an adaptation of the Paulette Jiles novel that is re-teaming Captain Phillips’ director Paul Greengrass and star Tom Hanks.

Scripted by Lion’s Luke Davies, the novel is set in 1870, revolving around a road trip through the untamed West taken by unlikely traveling partners. On the one hand is Captain Jefferson Kyle Kidd, a Texan who travels from town to town to read the news to locals who would otherwise not know what is going on in the world. While Kidd’s idea of excitement is spreading the word of the passage of the 15th Amendment that gave voting rights to all men, he gets a jolt when he agrees to escort a 10-year-old white girl to her aunt and uncle in San Antonio after she was rescued from the Kiowa Indian tribe that kidnapped her and killed her family four years earlier. His traveling partner is an ornery youngster who didn’t want to be rescued and brought to her relatives. Together they face the inhospitable frontier.

Playtone’s Hanks and Gary Goetzman are producing with Pretty Pictures’ Gail Mutrux and Gregory Goodman, latter of whom teamed with Greengrass on 22 July and Jason Bourne. Playtone has a long relationship with Fox 2000 and Elizabeth Gabler, and Hanks and Goetzman set up the picture with her label in May, 2017.

Gabler was surprised to learn that there won’t be a place for her or her Fox 2000 label at Disney, in a development that was a shocker to the town and every filmmaker who has a project there. This is the first project to come unglued and find a new home.

It was an easy move for Playtone, which collaborated with Universal on the Mamma Mia! movies and other films. Hanks will next appear in Toy Story 4 and It’s a Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood, a film about the beloved and iconic children’s television host Fred Rogers.

Greengrass returns to Universal where his credits include multiple Jason Bourne movies, as well as Green Zone and United 93, for which he scored an Oscar nomination. He most recently directed the Netflix drama 22 July.

Hanks and Greengrass are represented by CAA.

The Oscar buzz has begun:

Quote:
Everywhere you go, weary Oscar warriors are already moving on to next year. At the aforementioned Universal party, one exec was already guaranteeing a Best Actor nomination for Tom Hanks in News Of The World, the studio’s Christmas release, which is a western about a Texan delivering the news to various local towns. Hanks, a two-time Best Actor winner who got his first nomination in 19 years for A Beautiful Day In The Neighborhood, is said to have knocked it out of the park. Paul Greengrass is the director, and the studio clearly has high hopes for this one.
