Tom Hanks Directing “Larry Crowne”

Tom Hanks will both star in and direct “Larry Crowne”, the actor’s first directorial effort since 1996’s “That Thing You Do” says Deadline Hollywood.

The script, penned by Hanks, centres on a man who needs to find a new career and reinvent himself. He and his “Charlie Wilson’s War” co-star Julie Roberts will re-team on screen as the leads in this.

Filming kicks off this April in Los Angeles.
