Sandra Bullock, Tom Hanks could be sharing the screen together

HollywoodNews.com: Warner Bros. and Paramount are hoping that Sandra Bullock and Tom Hanks will crank it up in their co-production “Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close.”

The project is based on the dramatic novel by Jonathan Safran Foer about a boy who finds a key that belonged to his late father who died in the 9/11 attacks. The boy embarks on a search for the lock.

In a sign that the film is being groomed for a future Oscar season; Scott Rudin is attached to produce. He has apparently been developing the project for the last five years with Stephen Daldry (“The Hours”) attached to helm. Screenplay was penned by Eric Roth (“Benjamin Button”) who adapted the novel. Warner Bros. has offers out to Bullock and Hanks, but has not heard back in terms of their commitment.

At this point in time, both Warner Bros. and Paramount, who worked on “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button” together haven’t greenlit the feature.

Variety scored the news today.

If Bullock lands the role, it will be her first following her Oscar win for “The Blind Side.” Hanks can be seen next in the Universal dramedy “Larry Crowne” alongside Julia Roberts which he also produced and directed. Rudin’s upcoming films are “The Social Network” for Sony and “True Grit” for Paramount.
