The Walt Disney Company is dipping into it’s own rich history for their next fascinating feature film and they have recruited one of the biggest movie stars of all time to star. Two time Academy Award Winner Tom Hanks has signed on to feature in the biopic Saving Mr. Banks and casting calls for this fantastic new production are being planned now. Several roles will be available in what could be the film to watch in 2013.
Mary Poppins is one of the most beloved Disney films in history but most fans don’t know the true story of how the timeless family classic actually made it to the biog screen – until now. Saving Mr. Banks will detail the enthralling 14 year period wherein Walt Disney tried relentlessly to convince Austrian author P.L. Travers to let his company adapt her classic novel into a motion picture. This film promises to be a searing behind the scenes look into the man that was Walt Disney and the rigorous process involved in bringing Mary Poppins to audience everywhere. Ms. Travers was very emotionally connected to this her most successful work and after finally agreeing to Disney’s requests, ended up despising the final film and what had been done to her precious characters including the titular character Mr. Banks. Saving Mr. Banks is a story full of hard work and hard feelings and is sure to be on every major film award watchlist in the new year. John Lee Hancock, the man behind the crowd pleasing hit The Blind Side starring Sandra Bullock has been selected as the films director and he has lined up and impressive cast thus far that will feature Mr. Hanks as Walt Disney, Academy Award Winner Emma Thompson (Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2, Nanny McPhee) as Ms. Travers and the talents of Colin Farrell (In Bruges, The Recruit), Jason Schwartzman (Rushmore, Slackers) and Paul Giamatti (Private Parts, American Splendor) in supporting roles.
