Sandra Bullock and Tom Hanks team up in Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close

Last March 1 at the Burbank, Californian Warner Bros Pictures officially announced the film adaptation of Jonathan Safran Foer’s 2005 novel entitled Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close. The film adaptation stars Sandra Bullock and Tom Hanks and it will be directed by Stephen Daldry and produced by Scott Rudin.

The film also stars Thomas Horn, making his acting debut as 11-year-old Oskar Schell, an exceptional child with an off-kilter world view and a daunting mission ahead of him. The family drama followed Oskar’s character who believed that his father (Hanks) who died in the 9/11 attacked on the World Trade Center, had left him a final message that was hidden in the city. Left alone with his grieving mother (Bullock), he searched New York hoping to see that hidden message with the key he found in his father’s closet. His journey directed him in five areas where it lifted him from pain to a greater understanding of the visible world around him.

The film was written by Eric Roth and the whole movie will be shooting in New York. Also starring in the film are James Gandolfini as Ron, a new friend of Oskar’s mom; Zoe Caldwell as the boy’s grandmother; Max von Sydow as the man renting a room from Oskar’s grandmother, who befriends Oskar and accompanies him on his quest; and Viola Davis and Jeffrey Wright as a couple whose own tenuous relationship has a profound effect on Oskar.

Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close is currently scheduled to be released this year and to be distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.
