Tom Hanks is Walt Disney in "Saving Mr. Banks"

Tom Hanks is Walt Disney in "Saving Mr. Banks"Submit Comment
Tom Hanks is in talks to play Walt Disney in a movie called "Saving Mr Banks," about Disney's making of the 1964 film "Mary Poppins." Emma Thompson is in talks to play "Mary Poppins" author PL Travers.

The movie is based on the true story of how walt Disney spent fourteen years courting the Australian author for the rights to the Mary Poppins character in order to develop a film, which Travers was ultimately unhappy with, especially the animated sequences. She hated the project so much that she refused to sell any of her other works to Disney.

"Saving Mr. Banks" will be directed by John Lee Hancock (The Blind Side, The Alamo) from a script by Kelly Marcel ("Terra Nova"). The title refers to the character played by David Tomlinson in the original film.

Hanks can pull this off. I also like Gosling or maybe Jean Dujardin. He would be ideal if he could speak English.

Agreed, accept Thompson will not be playing Julie Andrews as marry poppins. SHe will be playing the writier of the mary poppins books.

another childhood crush was mary tyler moore. Then I found out my grandma was room mates with her in school. Then I met her when my great grandmother was selling her a house. crazy.

Travers was very unhappy with disney for screwing up her story.

Sounds like a very boring and uninteresting drama story. More importantly, what is the bloody reason to make a film about that???

Crikey! Makes you wonder if the human kind is running out of talented writers/authors or is it Hollywood's hot shots getting more stupid than the actual politicians?

Hanks? Hanks needs to tell Zemekis to f*ck off the mo cap & get started on directing movies again. Hanks really needs him now more than ever after CASTAWAY & FORREST GUMP.

BTW Gosling got robbed...
