Sandra Bullock and Tom Hanks get Loud and Close

Sandra Bullock ans Tom Hanks get close for Stephen Daldry's next film.

The cast of the next Johnathan Safran Foer film adaptation of Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close has been finalized. Sandra Bullock and Tom Hanks have signed on to the film. It will be directed by Stephen Daldry and will be handled by Scott Rudin.

The cast will sure increase the interest for the film. Daldry has been officially signed on for the film. The scripting will be done by Eric Roth. The book is amazing, but a film adaptation might just kill the book.

The film might turn out to be a little too melodramatic for my taste. It tells the story of a 9 year old boy who uncovers stories about his father, who was killed in the World Trade Center on 9/11. Here is a small synopsis from Slashfilm.

Oskar Schell is a nine-year-old amateur inventor, jewelry designer, astrophysicist, tambourine player and pacifist. Oskar turns his naïvely precocious vocabulary to the understanding of historical tragedy, as he searches New York for the lock that matches a mysterious key left by his father when he was killed in the September 11 attacks, a quest that intertwines with the story of his grandparents, whose lives were blighted by the firebombing of Dresden. Foer embellishes the narrative with evocative graphics, including photographs, colored highlights and passages of illegibly overwritten text, and takes his unique flair for the poetry of miscommunication to occasionally gimmicky lengths, like a two-page soliloquy written entirely in numerical code.
