Is It TOO SOON for Tom Hanks/Sandra Bullock Award Bait?

August 23, 2010


America, we've mourned the tragedy of September 11th long enough. Warner Bros. and Paramount are ready to get on with milking some sadness Oscars out of this thing, and they know just how succeed where Remember Me did not so much: with a Tom Hanks/Sandra Bullock drama! The studios have reportedly put out offers to both Oscar-winners to star in Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, an adaptation of a Jonathan Safran Foer novel that "centers on a 9-year-old boy who finds a key in a vase that belongs to his father -- who perished in the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks -- and searches to find the lock that goes with it." Stephen Daldry, who's thrice been nominated for Academy Awards--for The Reader, The Hours, and Billy Elliot--is attached to direct, pretty much guaranteeing you're going to see a montage of Hanks/Bullock emoting in between [Period Melodrama] and [Heart-Wrenching Biopic] at the Oscars. You're going to be so inspired.
