Academy Award winners Tom Hanks and Sandra Bullock are in discussions for the lead roles in Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, a post-9/11 drama currently in pre-production.
The movie follows Oskar Schell, 9, as he tries to find that lock that goes with a key owned by his father, who died in 9/11. Three-time Oscar-nominated lensman Stephen Daldry is already on board to direct the project, which was penned by screenwriter Eric Roth.
The dramatic piece could be the first time fans will see Bullock back on the big screen since winning a Best Actress Oscar in March for her role in the inspirational biopic The Blind Side. Tom, on the other hand, enjoyed huge box office this summer after reprising his gig as the voice of Woody in Pixar’s wildly-popular Toy Story 3. The film was recently christened the highest-grossing animated film in cinema history.
